    I don't know, you could fire a rifle into the air out around where I dove hunt and not have to worry too much about the spent round.

    Most here realize the shooters would be using shot guns. Only a fool would shoot a rifle into the air knowing the projectile will fall miles away and with no idea what or who is on the receiving end.

    Unfortunately there are fools in every state, county, township, and area.

    My opinion

    Around where I hunt birds, if one shoots to the west, the round is going to land out in the middle of thousands of acres of brush with a few cattle scattered around.

    I want to say that drones have finally been put to an All-American use, but the test-flight seems to have been in the UK.

    Something was fishy about the film and then I saw it. The news story talks about "West Pointe shooting club", Berks County, Penn. However, the film leader says that it occurred at Broxton Bridge Plantation, Ehrhardt, SC. IOW, PETA and Steve Hindi can't even tell the truth about where they filmed this.

    There's mention of a lawsuit over another drone. I believe this is on the coastal area of VA. They flew the drone but....it was too close to an active airfield. As I recall, it's not just a lawsuit but a lawsuit and a FAA complaint with a very big fine.

    I must be missing your point. My reply had nothing to do with your comment and everything to do with fools.
