Another Reason to Ask Santa for an iPhone

A full-featured ballistics calculator, titled (appropriately) iSnipe!:
iSnipe is the first and only ballistics calculator for the iPhone and iPod touch. Based on the excellent GNU Exterior Ballistics Library, iSnipe generates accurate 3-DOF solutions for small arms trajectories, including corrections for pitch, yaw and wind conditions.

Simply put; a ballistics computer is a calculator used to predict any bullets path/energy/wind-drift/etc… For shooting enthusiasts, this means the ability to pre-determine how, where and at what speeds your bullets will fly, before you even load your gun.

Created with ease of use in mind, iSnipe is the perfect companion for any gun aficionado, competition shooter, or even law-enforcement officer... It's just that accurate. With all the ingredients you'd expect from a portable ballistics calculator, including the ability to save and load ballistic profiles, automatic save of form values and all the other features you'd expect from an integrated iPhone app, there is no better way to get on target every time. Finally there is a portable desktop quality application that we can all take along with us to the range.
Of course, you've already downloaded SureFire's free shot timer ap!

Amazing! You can calculate bullet drop while listening to Chinese Democracy!

Is the album actually worth buying? How bout a review?

The album is geezer rock from Guns & Roses - do you seriously think it's any good? Please! Even their "original" stuff wasn't that good.

Do the iPhone programs work with the new Blackberry Storm (he said out loud, wonderingly . . . .)???

Happy day after Thanksgiving everyone.

For those sans iPhone or who prefer a rotary phone, a nice free Palm based app that I use is Ballistics v1.18.
