Ricardo López Tugendhat ~ 3-Time IPSC World Champion (Revolver)

Ecuadorian Ricardo López Tugendhat, three-time revolver world champion, has had to overcome a massive disadvantage in his shooting career compared to most international competitors. Ecuador is a small country where it is difficult to find a sponsor, and it is not a country where you can just go out and buy all the guns and ammo that you need. If you even want to practice at home, you must first make your own bullets and loads.

Yet even with these drawbacks Ricardo has still managed to claim his many championships with his favorite guns, especially the revolver. He has been crowned the 2008, 2011, and 2014 IPSC World Champion (Revolver Division).

These days, Ricardo dominates world revolver shooting. You need to go back over 10 years to the time when Ricardo came second behind the legendary Jerry Miculek at the 2005 IPSC World Shoot.

In this video you can see him show off his skill with various guns in different tournaments. In these clips, taken with his cap-mounted Tachyon GunCam, you can see Ricardo with the CZ Shadow 9mm, the STI .40 S&W, the S&W 625 45ACP, and the S&W 929 9mm.

MagCam: A Great New Camera for Law Enforcement.

Tachyon would like to introduce you all to a new product that is in the works. We are investing in this company and think that a lot of you may be interested in what they will be offering.

The MagCam is designed to be an extremely functional and useful addition to law enforcement gear.

Unlike a body cam, the MagCam includes a motion sensor that will turn on the camera whenever it detects running or the gun being drawn from its holster. In such situations, police may not have the time or attention to switch on their body cams, and so important evidential footage may never be recorded.

And unlike a body cam, which can be obstructed by raised arms, the MagCam attaches to the bottom of magazines and offers an unobstructed view of wherever the gun is pointing. The videos taken by the camera are secured by password to eliminate any tampering.

If you find the MagCam interesting we ask you to please share among your friends, especially those in law enforcement.

With your help, the World’s Best 1080p Sport Shooting Camera is going smaller and lighter.

See our IndieGoGo project HERE.

The maker of the World’s Most Popular Camera for Sport Shooters…

plans to make the world’s smallest and lightest 1080p camera, targeted at sport shooting enthusiasts. Your contributions will ensure production for the coming shooting season and bring to you big discounts and the earliest deliveries.

What We Need & What We Deliver

Designed with practical shooter in mind, the world’s best 1080p sport shooting camera will now be produced in a smaller and lighter form, with greater ease of use. Contributors will receive the first cameras and will enjoy significant discounts.

We are hoping for a combined commitment to 1,000 units, or $180,000.

The 1080p GunCam mini, on the left, as it will appear when mounted on a shooting cap. On the right is the current 1080p GunCam. Although the current camera is already small and light, we aim to reduce both the size and the weight, and update your software, for an even better experience.

The GunCam mini will boast the same fine video resolution and sound quality (Full-HD 1080p), but will be smaller and lighter and with special sport shooting software.

Unlike the current GunCam, the GunCam mini will be small enough to mount beneath the bill of the cap, as well as on top.

This configuration will not interfere with the shooter’s view, offering a view that matches the shooter’s perspective, and will not be blocked when shooting through low windows. Although the view will be wide-angle, there will be no ugly fish-eye distortion of the image.

Tachyon GunCam Readies Cameras for the New Sport Shooting Season

The favorite camera for the world’s top sport shooters readies for a new season of competition.

The Tachyon GunCam- Full-HD 1080p, weighs in at only 1.9 oz. (54 grams), so it sits light and unobtrusive on shooter’s caps. Centered on their heads and above their guns, they are perfectly placed to capture dramatic videos of both practice and competition.

The GunCam utilizes a wide-angle lens that captures hands, guns and targets, but without the undesired fish-eye effect that you find with most other cameras.

The GunCam is ideal for IDPA, USPSA, IPSC, ISSF, 3 Gun Nation, and NSSF shooters.

First-person GunCam video from the IPSC World Shooting Championship and Florida, 2014, featuring World’s Top Shooters using their cap-mounted Full-HD 1080p Tachyon GunCams.

Optional Sport Shooting Software, specifically designed for competition, ensures that your battery and memory card will last all day by automatically stopping recording after two minutes. This lets the shooter concentrate on the competition and not on turning off the camera, and enables the recording of a long day of competition without missing a single shot.

Standard non-stop software as well as other software targeted at different sports or uses, such as for motorcycles, dash cams with looping, law enforcement with Time & Date stamp, or hunting, give the user great control over camera operation.

The Full-HD 1080p GunCam for Sport Shooting, which includes the GunCam, Cap Mount, a Contour and Tripod mount, Rain/Dust proof Cover and a shooting cap can be purchased for only $199.99 from Tachyon’s Sport Shooting page. Free shipping within the US, and reasonable shipping rates worldwide. No sales tax other than for TX residents.
