ditto. I have no patience for this kind of personal invasion. What's the recommended shot for a 12 gauge?

For a reasonably close drone, I'd say bird shot, #6, or so, ought to do the trick.

For people looking at ya driving by on the street, double-ought buck.

Depends how good a shot you are, but probably anything from #2 down to #000.

I enjoy flying r/c model airplanes. Only one of mine has camera on it (forward-facing GoPro). Are they "drones" or toys? I call them toys. Expensive toys.

Shoot at my $4500 P-51 and i'm coming after you with my (200 mph) kamikaze jet.

Planes are different, they don't hover, although they can be threatening.

Since Amazon made headlines 18 months ago, when half the population said cool and the other half scoffed, the discussion died down. However, once they secured the patent, Amazon's drone team has been working behind the scenes, sort of flying below the radar. Now they have proposed a plan to the FAA to establish zones and rules for them to move forward with this plan.

...and loud as hell sometimes. I'd keep my r/c planes close to the r/c airport.

Actually, mine fly at my dropyard. Lots of open space, hardly any traffic, hardpack to take off and land on, grass to, um, emergency land, on. I could fly at home, but my neighbors might not like the mosquito-like noise and there are a lot of trees, plus an interstate downwind. Not a great idea for r/c flight.

Hmm, if the Feds say I'm not supposed to use a shotgun, maybe a trained Eagle... hmm

This will only continue to get worse until we all realize that drones must be licensed just like other hardware that can also be harmful. Pilots and planes are licensed. Cars are licences. Drone can easily be licensed. Which includes a VIN number in the digital transmissions to and from each drone.

Unfortunately, emotion rather than logic dominates both the anti-drone and we have the right to do anything pro-drone advocates.

I bet that "wedge-tailed eagle" has a different tail now,
... and it won't try hunting that kind of bird again.

I have a 10x10 with 32 inch barrels. The goose rounds I have shot are BB or BBB. Is there any update on the case in Kentucky? I think the guy was justified

I haven't heard anything else about the drone killer. Probably be a while before that gets to court.

I did find this today. Drone video of a flash flood on Maui:



Dude has less than 20 seconds from the first noticeable increase in flow til he goes over. No one hurt.
