If someone was using a drone to spy on me over my house and property, I would probably eliminate it one way or another. I would consider it invasion of my privacy and a form of harassment.

Hopefully Estes model rockets will develop a drone seeking kit model we can launch at them. That would be funny as hel*!

If I saw a drone looking into my window I would do whatever it took to take it out. Are they casing the place? There is no reason for a drone to be on your property. If you are "delivering" something you better tell me in advance or it is coming down.

Better run, because if you shot government property or news station property, you're probably going to jail.

Meh, I don't care. If it's flying within 50 yards- well I must've confused it with a crow.

a. How about having a couple of "armed" drones to take out other drones?

b. Or maybe having a mini rocket launcher battery to take out drones, birds, whatever (something like the Israeli air defense)

c. Or maybe a fully automatic but miniature gatling gun system similar the ones on the B-52 tails? Anything the gun tracks and locks on is turned to dust.

d. How about a potato launcher with an electronic target acquisition system? Now, that would be fun

~Just kidding folks.

I'm blown away that you all are a bunch of yahoos that are just itching to shoot people's equipment up.

You're the people that give gun owners a bad name.

Who's worse? Someone looking at private property or someone destroying private property?

Note that I never advocated "spying" or any other activity that could be construed as such, yet I was attacked and threatened merely because I fly these things. I don't fly anywhere near you. I don't want to fly anywhere near you. Your house is ugly and messes up my view of the landscape. I couldn't care less if you have a trampoline in your yard or if you sunbathe naked. As a matter of fact, that's probably the LAST thing I'd want to see...

Following along with your logic, let me ask you a question. How many people have you murdered today? You're a gun owner, and some gun owners kill people with their guns, so I should naturally assume that you all kill people on a fairly regular basis, right?

You want me to respect your property, but you brag that you want to destroy mine. Hypocrites.

I have no idea if you are responding the the OP, or to me, but here it goes:
Chill out. We are just having fun with this thread, and I believe the OP was not talking about you, nor about killing people

By the way, we all know that shooting drones off the sky may be illegal. Rules that apply to the use of drones by the public will be discussed this year, and laws with be created.

That said, it would certainly be a lot of fun to have a drone dogfight among people who have lots of money to spare. Don't you think so?

If you keep your " property " away from mine we won't have any problems . Flying your little toy over my property is trespassing and an invasion of my privacy . You may expect me to react to that . Call me a hypocrite if you wish , I'll call you an inconsiderate jerk .

If I had the resources I would make sport of capturing those drones...or at least shooting them down. I reckon most of them land in the desert...The trick is to shoot them down long before they reach their destination and those who are waiting for them.

Shooting down drones as sport, resistible or irresistible?

And if you find it repulsive that anyone would want to shoot down a drone, what do you suggest will stop anyone from doing so? Cameras?

Enquiring minds want to know!
Sometimes I see a dog running through my neighborhood, and I wonder...could I make that shot? Moving target? How do you resist shooting your neighbor's dog?
