Ok who shot down the Drone??

A $4 million military drone plopped out of the sky into Lake Ontario and now nobody can find it. The National Guard reported that one of its flying robots plummeted into the eastern part of the lake around 1 p.m. yesterday, but had to give up searching for it because of bad weather.

The MQ-9 Reaper was on a practice mission over the military-controlled waters when it suddenly crashed about three hours into its session. The unarmed drone was being operated from the New York Air National Guard's 174th Attack Wing in Syracuse. A Coast Guard vessel and helicopter were deployed to find it, but, uh, couldn't.

It's unclear what caused it to go down
I hope someday someone remembers this old dog with kindness and gives me to a puppy.

Am I the only one thinking about depleted uranium rounds in a #3 at 1550fps? You want to talk about some Hevi Shot...

Federal regs don't say jack about lead. They say non-toxic.

Ok, I confess, It was I. Really wasn't that hard to bring down, just used 7/8 ounce of bb's going 1925 feet per second like I use on snow geese and Swans. The real battle was packing out the 2 dozen decoys, that was a real bitch!!!!!
