    drone takedown

    Lots of folks take offense at the intrusion of privacy that drones cause. Here's one who took action.

    I reckon I'd use a .410 but I like the idea. My nightmares often
    have drones and scenes from "Terminator" movies.

    can't blame the chimp for that! if I had one with in reach, it would be eating a 2x4, only because I don't own a gun

    "No,no,no,no!" Well if firearms are too risky give them machetes like Uganda's Idi Amin....let them make choped-copeters out of quadcopters.

    Seriously if you want to take down a drone do not use a firearm for legal reasons. I believe an air powered BB machine gun falls outside the BATF regs

    I hope no one shoots down my drone I wouldn't go in anyone's private yards though, so hopefully I'm safe... Definitely not looking to violate anyone's privacy.

    I'm mainly fascinated with them for SAR reasons, and as a means for deliveries one day. Just learning the industry now.

    Do you guys actually see some hobbyist (or commercial) drones flying in your yards? Or is this a concern of the future?

    I think the drones are the guys controlling them.

    The chimp videos were part of a promotion for the movie Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Just making sure y'all are aware.
