Drones have definitely become common in our everyday lives. There are plenty of their possible uses, from taking photos and videos to making tigers exercise. However, not all of the applications are useful or positive. I’ve often heard that you could use a drone to spy on your neighbors, and apparently, some people do it, big time. But this woman decided she doesn’t want to put up with that. So, she takes a gun and opens the drone hunting season.

YouTube video

This video is taken by a drone hovering over the woman’s home. When she first sees it, she tries to take it down by throwing rocks at it. But for whichever reason, the drone pilot persists. He moves the drone away when she starts throwing rocks, but then he moves it close to the house again. This is when she gets really pissed off (who wouldn’t). She gets inside and shows up with a gun, pointing it at a drone. I can’t tell if she fires a shot, as there’s no sound. But I certainly hope she does.

Although I’m not really into guns, I can totally understand this woman. Nobody has the right to invade your personal space and privacy, and hovering a drone that near your house would do exactly that. Drones are awesome in terms of aerial photography and footage, and they have other good applications – but spying isn’t one of them. I’d never destroy something that doesn’t belong to me, but if this something was a drone filming me on my own balcony – I’d try to take it down and smash it without thinking. What would you do in a situation like this? Do you approve what this woman did or you think it’s a bit over the top?

    I think she was completely justified. Doing something like this can result in someone destroying your equipment. And, I feel they are completely justified in doing so. This is no different than using a long lens to peed inside someone’s windows. In most places, that is illegal. The only difference here is in the equipment used to do this.

      the ‘only’ problem being when she inevitably misses, and some 8 year old 3 miles away takes a lead slug to the skull. kind of looked like a shot gun (which would greatly improve her odds) but then replace the above sentence with ‘her neighbor takes some bird shot to the face’

        A. It is a felony crime to shoot at a FAA licensed aircraft. A properly registered drone falls under that.
        B. It is extremely likely that discharge of a firearm within city limits is a misdemenor charge at minimum wherever she is.
        C. The drone operator may or may not have been within legal boundaries to record or be.
        D. Your firearms knowledge is lacking. But since this is a photo site *shrug*

          OK to A, B, and C.
          D. Just curious, good sir or madam, what part of my statement indicates a lack of firearm knowledge? I am certainly no expert and do not claim otherwise, but are you saying it is impossible that someone standing ‘down-range’ from a discharged firearm could not be injured? In the city of Los Angeles alone, in 7 years 38 people died from ‘falling bullet’ injuries. *shrug*

            Well, for one, at 0:27 in several frames, it appears to be a Daisy break action pellet gun. Mind you, I’m basing that off the barrel profile and what appears to be a locking block near the end of the stock. If so, it would certainly wreck a drone pretty good (they are a great squirrel whacker) but unless you hit someone in an extremely sensitive spot at short distance, it won’t do squat to a person besides get stuck in their skin. (still hurt like hell though)

            It certainly isn’t any shotgun or small caliber firearm I’ve ever seen, and that’s saying a lot as a former FFL dealer for almost 8 years.

            That said, your most common shotgun shells are birdshot, which past 50 yards or so is relatively harmless to people. Buckshot and slugs are a different thing entirely, but slugs are more rare these days, outside defensive or wildlife use.

            Believe it or not, shotgun 00 buckshot is deadlier than your oft touted “weapon of war” AR-15. Then again, the AR is relatively low powered against the rest of the firearms out there.

        A bullet that has traveled three miles wouldn’t have enough remaining energy to break the skin. Lol.

    I would have waited for the drone to “go home” and followed it, and then beat the crap out of the operator.
