AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TrackingPoint™, creator of the world's first Precision Guided Firearm (PGF) system, today kicked off the first leg of its ShotMade Tour in Chicago, aimed at giving anyone the unique opportunity to experience the thrill of long-range shooting with its revolutionary PGF rifle system.

Now, we're hitting the road to prove it, offering private demos in 20 states by the end of the year," said TrackingPoint CEO Jason Schauble. "This is an incredible opportunity to try-before-you-buy and see for yourself the potential of this technology to revolutionize long-range shooting and ethical hunting practices."
The ShotMade Tour will be in Illinois today through Wednesday, Aug. 7, before moving on to Ohio for demos Thursday, Aug. 8 through Saturday, Aug. 10.

The TrackingPoint PGF is the world's first precision guided firearm that puts fighter jet-style lock-and-launch technology in a rifle. The system integrates precision hardware, digital optics, automatic ballistics calculation, tracking technology and guided fire control to create the most accurate long-range shooting system in the world, proven to effectively engage targets out to 1,200 yards.
The complete system includes built in Wi-Fi and the ShotView™ streaming video mobile app to let shooters share their experience with friends and family in real time with a smartphone or tablet device. The system also records each shot with video and audio that can be downloaded to a networked iPhone or Android smartphone for sharing via social media like Facebook and Twitter or SMS and email.
The TrackingPoint debuted in January at the 2013 SHOT Show® and has since garnered substantial media attention, having been featured on the covers of Triggers Magazine and Gun World, and on CNN Money, Popular Science and NBC News. The system was also highlighted at the 2013 International CES and has appeared in numerous other firearms industry and technology outlets.
