Re: Clay pigeon shoot?

Er, the airspace wasn't contested - that's the whole point! What should have been flying was grounded and anything else would be at 30,000 feet. A decent goose hunter with the right shot would easily hit a drone at 300 feet, police marksmen with the "wrong" shotguns\shot and army snipers with sights and weapons designed to fire long and far have one in a million chance of hitting a drone unless it hovers in front of their nose.
