    Drones versus guns

    I know we have some gun enthusiasts here and also interest in drones , add in FPV (first person view video from drones) and you got a great deal of fun at the gun range.



    Enoy, i know i did, getting near time to go out and buy a drone.

    The red ones they were using in this footage are Vortex 285 Quads

    Found them here for $400

    Dont think MA or NH or NY would like something like this being held in their state.

    Actually that drone footage at big sandy does not do it justice.

    Check out this one...no drones but man full auto, cannons and tank.
    Definitely a bucket list item and i for one am not waiting till i cant hold a weapon to go. 😊
    Not a cheap event but u only live once. Not going as a spectator, so have to figure a few things out in the gun department. What is needed is a cannon ......calling Chuck...lol.

    Guess you wouldn't settle for a mini marshmallow shooting pneumatic rifle, huh? We have one at the lab. It is a hoot!

    And least you thing it harmless, it punches holes in double correlated cardboard and can do some serious damage if one were to be hit with one. Darned impressive to see what a marshmallow can do.

    Rob you can rent just about anything you want to shoot at the event, Come out for the spring event, I'll meet you there. Maybe we could get Vaughn to come over from NM and darren might be tempted, heck we could make it a FWW gathering. It's 180 miles from my house so we would have to camp but hmmmmmm might be a blast.

    It'd be fun to watch, but I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to participate - can't afford the ammo. Full auto guns eat the dollars like nobody's business.

    The guy I train with has a Class III license, so he's got a few full auto toys to play with.

    heck for the $25 for spectators you can have a great time,you can even bring your own firearm and participate in some of the matches or take a course in tactical firearms without the full auto. Come on Rob maybe we can get Brent and Sharon to come on down.
