12 ga - 3" Uranium Drone Load - 1 3/8 oz - Tacnition - 5 Rounds
Luckygunner.com ^ | April 1, 2013

Posted on 04/01/2013 3:11:54 PM PDT by FreedomPoster

Quick Overview

A first of its kind ammunition to help protect you and your family from unwanted surveillance.

Details

Big Brother is watching, and with modern technology, if Big Brother can see it, he can turn it into a giant smoking crater with just the press of a button. Even your secret remote wilderness bunker is no match for today’s military drones. In partnership with Tacnition Ammo, Lucky Gunner is happy to introduce a new way for you to fight back against the All Seeing Eye with our new anti-drone shotgun loads.

Years of research and development have gone into these highly effective 12 gauge shells that can turn even Joe Biden’s double barrel shotgun into an instant anti-aircraft platform. Specially formulated propellant is capable of launching 9 pellets of depleted uranium rounds up to 1 km straight up into the air. With accurate shot placement, this armor piercing buckshot will disable vital systems on modern military drones. At minimum, the force of impact will disable navigation systems, but in over 60% of our field tests, the drones were incapable of remaining airborne after contact with our Anti-Drone Loads.

NOTE: Drone Loads are intended for entertainment use only and not intended to be used in any manner not in accordance with federal and local laws. Lucky Gunner assumes no responsibility for any illegal activity involving Tacnition Drone Ammo.

I doubt any shotgun load would have enough range for drones.

April fools anyone?
Better to build yourself a punt gun, like 4 gauge, make the loads of shot connected by steel cable.

Speaking as an old Navy Fire Control Technician who has shot a lot of 5”38 rounds, I doubt that a shotgun would reach a drone. I must say that I do not know the altitude that an operational drone flies at. One also needs to figure out how much to lead it.

At last, the solution to my problem! When I’m free-falling through a formation of drones with a smoking pistol in either hand, there’s no good way to reload. I mean, sure, I could put 30-round magazines on my Webley-Vickers, but those might be illegal soon.

Too bad that all govt drones (not COT toys) operate above audible and visual range from the ground. Much less shotgun or even rifle range.

If-when it comes to that, eliminate drones by eliminating the drivers, their family, friends, dwellings, etc

A Predator MQ-1 has a service ceiling of 25,000 feet, a range of 675 nautical miles.

You’d need one hell of a shotgun to take that out. The AGM-114 Hellfire has a range of about 5 miles, and travels at Mach 1.3. 20 pound high-explosive warhead.

You’re gonna need a bigger shotgun.

It would probably be more plausible to jam UAV’s using ‘spark gap’ methods.

Just as the best platform to take out an airplane is another airplane, and the best platform to take out a tank is another tank, anti-drone drones are going to be the ticket. I’m sure there plenty of them under development in various military R&D labs.

For now. They are scaling down to drones of much smaller sizes and utility.

During WWII my father was an armorer and serviced Quad 50’s and Bofors. Quad 50’s were pretty good anti-aircraft weapons.

They would not be effective for the drones, unless the operator used bad judgement and flew low and slow. hee hee hee

When I was in the first or maybe second grade at Springfield Elementary in Panama City, our entire class got to visit a ship at the Navy base.

I am not sure if it was a Coast Guard cutter or maybe a Navy ship but I got to sit at the controls of a double barreled cannon. A sailor showed us the 3 round clips of shells they would dump in a hopper.

To me these were huge cannons tho I realize now they were pretty small. I do remember that even a six year old could spin the guns around with no trouble. Almost no effort required to move them.

I later worked with a couple of old Federal agents who were in the Navy in WWII. They told me they were Bofors guns and obviously anti-aircraft.

I wonder if kids of today get to have such fun at school. This would have been around 1953.

I’m getting 5 boxes for my Mossberg 590 today!

Does it come in .45 ACP for my Glock 1911? :-)

Street price of the 1911 Gen4 is anticipated to be around $800, undercutting the upcoming Heckler and Koch 1911 by a hefty $2,300.

LOL!!

While these are amusing and in jest, Google Argus+Predator.

Darpa has been busy. With a 1.8 gigapixel camera system in a Predator they can watch from 17,500ft with resolution to at least 6”. You would need a SAM to hit that.

Then... what we really need is some 'drone bait'.
