Air rifles could be chancy at best. How about one of these?

This is a nice little follow-on article, and seems to suggest that the Amazon drone is real!!!!

It's going to be funny to see how far this goes...either way  :P

They can't have much payload or range. And I'd like to see the insurance claim form if one injures someone.

That's just a matter of time an development snowy, look at the range and payload of a Predator B for instance.

They've got Predators already, they're a bit big to fly around near human height.

So there would always be a payload limit.

Merely an example snowy, it depends on how large they allow drones to get lets face it they can drive several tonnes of vehicle outside my front door!!!
