TrackingPoint has raised $64M to expand their gun manufacturing beyond military and hunting uses. The firm makes tracking devices that will allow uses to make more accurate shots from hundreds away from their target. They already have a $3M ballistics lab and a 500 yard lab (range). They are working on a device that will track objects going up to 120 mph and 1,200 yards away. If you are interested in buying one of these devices (Christmas is only 6 months away) you can do so directly and the cost is a mere $10K. The company has 80 employes and 2013 sales were $10M and expected to double in 2014.
