I'm not surprised of the choice of OS: having a BSOD when an angry
grizzily bear is charging, is literally it, blue screen of DEATH.

(I guess that is a refreshing change, having computer partisanism
instead of political one...)

Best regards from Italy,

It appears that this site really has a military application. So
the market it to todays gun nut as a hunting tool for deer.

Yes, everyone should own at least one on top of a 338 for that
1200 yard shot for home protection.

Seriously, I don't see anything wrong with owning one but, get
real, call it what it really is. It's a sniper scope.
