    Obviously, they are not big fans of ballistic trajectories. Big difference between the trajectory of a laser and a pellet or bullet.

    Just more PC crap from people who don't even understand a little bit of what they're saying. Removing ballistics from the equation essentially destroys the sport.

    On an aside, this is the same issue facing the military training with .22 conversion ARs, MILES gear, and computer simulators. They're great tools for training but none of them acts the same way a bullet does. Ballistics must be accounted for, weather must be accounted for. One must be trained and practice on the actual system in actual conditions or it's pointless.

    Today's military uses the "spray and pray" method so ballistics don't mean anything! Haven't you watched any of the combat videos in Iraq and Afghanistan on Utube? Mind you, I'm not criticizing our troops, It's just that I don't believe that when they enter the military they have much experience with firearms as kids did 30 or 40 years ago.

    But what will they do when laser pointers are banned as anti-aircraft weapons like in Australia?
