    If I can hear it and it's over my property that starts to be a problem given how quiet they are. I don't care if it's a cookout, wedding, birthday, militia training or me in my birthday suit.
    Now this started with wildlife harassment, in CO you can shoot a dog if it is harassing wildlife or stock, for now I'll do the same for drones.

    World War I intrduced the first airplanes as observation decks. That worked for awhile. Someone took up a pistol. Then someone took a shotgun. The first machine guns with synchronized cams begot a deadly "Fighter" plane.
    How long before armed Drones are are knocking each other out of the sky???:uhoh:

    Well I'm not worried about armed drones but I don't think I've ticked people off enough to think they'd try and knock me off (at least it's been a while since I think I've had that status).
    The potential is certainly there and not many years ago we saw some video hunts in Texas that caused some changes in game laws.

    Well, except that 400' above the ground is as high as a drone is legally allowed to operate. This is to keep them out of airspace used by aircraft. A midair collision with an airplane or helicopter is a serious matter that could cost multiple lives.

    Except that any drone that is not within line of sight of the operator is going to have video feed and that video feed is most likely being downloaded. So you would be SSSing on video that is stored. That kind of makes The Whole SSS thing a bit tough to get away with.;)

    This Drone issue represents in the West another attack on private property rights by the "Fed". We have had to shot down near me. No one has come forth to claim the remains. When they do they will be arrested. :thumbup:

    There are 12 ga. rounds made specifically for drones......I cannot give an effective comment, as I haven't tried them. I do believe steel waterfowl loads would be excellent for that job also-a drone is a bit more fragile than a goose......;)

    All this wandering has Elmer the Elk feeling lost and lonely.
