    This won't fly very far (pardon the pun). Towns do not own or control the airspace above them, it's all federal. That is a good thing, because (among many other reasons) places like NYC and Chicago would try to prevent you from carrying your guns in your own airplane as you fly over their town if they could, but they can't.

    Since it's federal thing, steel shot is mandatory. ;)

    From what I understand about the bullet travel all the way up in the sky till it run out energy and free falling. Free falling of a small object like 45 cal bullet wont hurt anyone :)

    Guess they have to do something to draw some out of state hunters since the state passed their horrible gun laws.

    That's true only if the shot is straight up. If it's shot at an angle it retains the horizontal component of its kinetic energy and could still be lethal when it touches down.

    Blitz . . . I have eaten poached salmon and poached eggs but I'm not sure about poached drones.

    Come to think about it, a group of cannibals could have a real feast with poached drones from congress.

    I remember reading in the news a while back when a gun club down south was having a live pigeon shoot that some PETA folks flew an RC helicopter with a camera over them to try to take videos. It got shot down. :)

    Interesting about the bullet coming straight down. I guess you learn something everyday. Since you wouldn't be using 45acp and more likely something pointy like a 5.56/308 I sure wouldn't want to get hit even straight down if the point happening to be facing down in freefall.

    Pretty entertaining stuff about the drone permit. I have one on my refrigerator next to my Zombie permit already so I guess I am all legal and can do what I want lol. Just never thought there would be an actual, legally bought drone permit anywhere. Somehow I believe if you shot a DHS drone the Feds wouldn't care that Billy Bob at the bait store sold you a permit.

    I have a question,...
    Do I need a migratory drone stamp too?
    Or is my license and tag good enough?

    Even if you hit it'll come down. Maybe with a big chunk of drone around it, but still
