    I think the drone gun is fine, if used where required, such as fire dept. personnel getting a drone out of the way so they can service a fire. The fact that it lands it safely rather than just scrambling the thing out of the sky to crash land is a great plus.

    I agree, have no problem with it, if used as you describe and to keep them out of unauthorized area's AND maybe you get it back.

    Well, it wasn't the fire dept., it was the FAA. I flew too close to a radar installation and it dropped from the sky, inside the fence. I had to go to the FAA offices by the airport and sit in a conference room and listen to scolding for 30 minutes before they returned the bird and sent me off with a bunch of regulations printed out.
