On the matter of shooting down Amazon delivery drones with shotguns

Microwave guns

I just thought I'd pop by and add my two cents:

Microwave guns made from wire mesh / tinfoil and microwave emitters from cheap $50 microwaves (probably bought from amazon.com).

As long as the shape of the waveguide is correct, it should be able to reach a drone at 300ft. If one emitter is not powerful enough, add more until you have enough power, using reflectors to combine the beams.

Pros:

- Cheap to build

- Effective against electronics

- Point and click

- Line of sight operation

- No ballistics to take into account

- Infinite ammo

- Output capacity can be increased as required

Cons:

- Requires a power source

- May reflect off rain, telegraph poles, etc

- May also disrupt nearby electronics such as phones, computers, etc

- Might give you cancer

- Might burn you

- Might electrocute you

- Might catch fire

- Might explode
