How To Shoot Down a Drone

gurps_npc writes: Popular Mechanics has a nice article about how to shoot down a non-military drone. Interestingly enough, a Super Soaker will do the job while a standard paint gun does nothing. It doesn’t take much energy as long as it is concentrated. A BB gun can do it as well — if you can hit the the target. “Other good non-gun options include pretty much any other solid-projectile slinger. Slingshots will likely work—again, assuming you can hit.” They add, “Last but not least, you never want to underestimate the power of just throwing crap. A rock, a baseball, anything you can fling straight, accurate, and fast. All it takes to down a drone is a bent propeller or enough of a jolt to flip it.”
