Thats why i'm skeptical of laser sights on sniper rifles. Why use a laser that gives away your position if your just going to use a scope. But unless its TV guided lasers are a nessesary tradeoff for this technology.

In another related event...
There was this movie from the early 80's, starring Tom Seleck... cannot remember its name... but it involved Seleck chasing down this guy who was re-programming household robots to kill. The bad guy had a gun which fred heat seeking bullets.
Amazing how reality reflexs sci-fi.
