overhead flying at about 500 ft you could clearly see that it was a drone.
Within shot gun range????
500 feet is a bit much for a shotgun. The neatest fix for such a flying eggbeater is a dummy rifle grenade towing a long, heavy weight, fishing line. My lightweight grenades are good for about 900 vertical feet. That’s enough to keep low flying geniuses honest and besides the rule is 500 feet minimum for manned craft. And I think it’s 400 feet max for unmanned aircraft. So if you’re concerned about low-flying drones make sure you have a rifle that can handle a 22 millimeter NATO standard rifle grenade. Practice grenades are available everywhere and light nylon cord is even easier.
Probably not. And that is probably the “why” behind the leftists banning or trying to ban certain weapons like sniper rifles and the AR-15. So angry Americans won’t be shooting down Obama’s spy drones.
