Re: Wow, blundering around like freshly castrated cattle.

If it is too high for a shotgun, then have a police marksman stick a 7.62mm round through it. If they can't pop a cap in the arse of a slow moving target against a light background then they should be handing back the firearms certification.


Hitting a flying target is hard, even for a radar guided gun... which is why everyone eventually switched to missiles as the primary AA weapon.

At any reasonable distance it would take real machine guns and a LOT of rounds to have a good chance of hitting.... probably burning more ammo than the drone cost, by orders of magnitude... and then you have thousands of bullets falling over the city.

Not the best plan.
