Drone with 9mm

FAA Investigates After Teen Fires Pistol-Shooting Drone, Says it Was For His Studies - Inside Edition

Austin Haughwout of Clinton, Connecticut told INSIDE EDITION that he mounted a 9mm semi-automatic pistol to the top of the drone as part of his studies.

"I am going for a degree in mechanical engineering and this was an application of the technology I have access to," he said.

Will someone tell him that it's been taken care of already.

Well dang, I had no idea. With a shotgun it would sure liven-up a dove hunt.

I like it. It is probably not for everyone though.

Doesn't the US Military Industrial Complex use em in other countries?

Gee be glad it was not a fire bomb. Easy to make and far more destructive.

Now that I think of it that is a awful thought. Out here in CA each year there is plenty of Brush and Forset Fires start on purpose. Most of the Fires are started near some Road even if it is only a dirt Road. A Drone would allow you to penatrate deeper into the area and leave less evidence in the area where the Fire starts.
