    Has anyone actually tried something like this? Cost = about $30.00.

    I remember the government paid something like a billion dollars to develop similar (more advanced tech) for ARs, which is sad and hilarious at the same time.

    Can you really hold an AR, over even a .22 around a wall and see the dot/target with one of these things?

    Might make for a fun 'shooting from behind plywood or barrels' toy at the range if so. It says you can shoot directly/normally or from either side.

    I bet it works just fine. It looks a little fragile though. Maybe its just me?

    Or, for the bargain price of only $7,000 you could buy a corner-shot!

    There is one of these at the Imperial War Museum in London. Been there done that. It was really cool.

    It is on its way from Hong Kong. A slave made it, and I'll try it.

    "I remember the government paid something like a billion dollars to develop similar (more advanced tech) for ARs, which is sad and hilarious at the same time."

    Similar to NASA spending over a million bucks for an ink pen that would work in space with no gravity.

    The Russians spent less then a Ruble developing their writing implement. They used a pencil.

    I once bought a toaster that did Hot dogs and buns all at once. Think this thing will be about as useful. Seemed cool as I clicked the "Place order now" button.

    OMG that sounds like the most amazing invention ever. Where did you get it? Do you have any pictures?

    ...and then the Russians abandoned their pencils and bought our pens.

    Fact or Fiction?: NASA Spent Millions to Develop a Pen that Would Write in Space, whereas the Soviet Cosmonauts Used a Pencil: Scientific American
