Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Richland County deputies now have a new rifle that says it can almost ensure a perfect hit for a shooter.
Sheriff Leon Lott debuted the M600 Thursday afternoon. The $10,000 rifle was donated to the department by a local business owner who wanted to remain anonymous.
The rifle is made by Tracking Point. The company says the rifle allows a shooter to lock onto a target, even if they're not standing still or are off balance.
The scope of the rife can pinpoint the center mass of a target, and maintain it until the shooter squeezes the trigger.
One of our photographers, Ralph Cooper, got to try out the rifle. You can see that demonstration below.
