    Was just generally wondering if anyone knew if ATF had any registration requirements for say an remote user controlled firearm. Did a quick google search and nothing. Would it need to be registered as a DD or maybe fall under AOW status?

    I'm on enough lists...I'm not going to Google remote firing weapons to get put on another...

    Although, those remote sentry guns from Aliens were pretty awesome...

    I was interested in more information on this. For example a remote thermal system mounted on top of a telephone pole next to a planted field where animals (like hogs) do damage to crops.

    The only thing that I found was rules prohibiting the internet control due to unethical inhumane kills.

    With the available technology it would seem easy to set up a motion detector and a remotely operated aiming and triggering device

    Anti-gun heads will explode if a market forms for this. If democrats get even a whiff of it, they will use it to scare the people before anything ever gets produced.

    Can't remember which movie the guy assassinated someone with a remote rifle setup, but I can see that scene all over CNN, lol.

    Israel developed a automatic sentry gun 15 years ago.
    It is an area denial weapon like a land mine field, but is easily set up, turned on and off, and moved.

    Yea but only for violating FAA regulations...ATF was never mentioned cause it wasn't automatomatic and looked like a gun so it never fell in any category besides "pistol"
