Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard will teach Iranian teenagers how to hunt drones, according to reformist Iranian newspaper Etemaad daily and semi-official Fars news agency. Etemaad daily quotes Ali Fazli, the acting general in charge of the Revolutionary Guard's Basij, a paramilitary volunteer militia infamous for attacking pro-democracy supporters, saying drone-hunting will be part of high school classes on "Defensive Readiness."
Iran claims it previously hunted American drones; most notably, in December 2011, it claimed it captured a RQ-170 stealth drone. There's a possibility the RQ-170 was not shot out of the sky, but instead compromised by "spoofing," where hackers feed the drone new GPS coordinates, forcing it to land and then capturing it. (The U.S. government denied that this was the case, claiming instead a technical problem.) After the RQ-170's capture, Iran paraded it around, and has continued to do so for two years now

Of course, we do know that drones can be taught to hunt mosques.
Maybe the NRA could develop a new course for us Americans in need of similar skills.
I recall that the Day By Day commic had a drone hunting section. I will see if I can find it.
Yeah. Send their instructors over here when they’re finished...: )
Out our way, we think drones are a type of skeet.
There is a nice drone hunting scene in the film “The Bourne Legacy”
Hey, this could lead to an interesting thread discussion...I'll start.
Let's see, 12 ga/.00 buck for those pesky little skeet's that buzz around your yard.
M2 for those larger dodo bird types doing flyovers....
What's your preferred choice?
The drone hunt sequence begins at 29:50 and runs till he plants the tracker on the wolf and the wolf takes a hellfire missile hit from the 2nd drone.
Hmmm, good point.
Wonder if we could get our hands on some of those missing....oops, I best not finish that thought.
LOL...and I agree.
No joke. It’d be a great optional PE credit.
Wonder if they offer a correspondence course in English?
