Nooo, it's not a gun. After much contemplation between myself and Avion we eventually broke down and bough ourselfs some 2 way radios.
Thought it might be a good idea for hunting on the weekend seeing that we are always a good distance from each other and who knows what could go wrong, so yes safety was a priority. Did some tests on them last night, worked well in a built up area up to 5 km's and claimed 16kms overall distance, still needs to be tested out on the hunt in the flat lands. Good thing about these things is that they work on a system called VOX which is similar to what pilots use, no need to press any buttons, just talking into your hands free kits and automatically the com comes on to transmit, so , no putting down the gun and always in contact with someone.
