Shooting RC Planes with Machine Guns at Big Sandy Shoot

... Amazing video of gas powered RC aircraft being shot down with massive machine gun fire! It all happened at the October, 2010 Big Sandy MG Shoot near Wikieup, Arizona. The weather started out iffy but turned into a blessing as there where no fires due to the earlier rains. We managed to run through 1500 reactive targets and 38 planes. The airplanes didn't stand a chance as everyone's Triple A capabilities were awesome. I do not remember any of the airplanes making it through more than 6 passes with most of them getting shot down in 2 or 3. The night flying was real cool to watch and presented a problem for our pilot to see his plane as most of the tracer fire was green and the lights on the planes were green.. We figured there where 200 rds a second going up at the planes when they presented themselves. The sky was filled with the tracers!

How HARD is it to shoot down a HIGH SPEED Drone?
The RC airplanes at the Big Sandy Machine gun shoot are one of the favorite targets for shooters there. They call them "target drones", The tiny planes zip back and forth and are anywhere from 100 to over 300 yards away and are moving fast. The "vital" areas of the plane are very small and difficult to hit. It takes a direct hit of the engine, the fuel tank, the radio receiver or one of the servos to bring down the plane. Once in a while the RC pilot tapes explosives on the plane and rarely a bullet will hit that and blow up the plane. - More information on Big Sandy Machine gun shoot: Cost to spectate is only $25 for the whole weekend and you can camp onsite (included in price of admission).

Trench Shotgun vs German Grenade (WW1 myth)
We look at an old soldier's myth about using a heavy, cumbersome trench shotgun to counter German grenades flying at them. Since they were using 00 buckshot, and there are only 9 pellets per shell, it would seem you'd be NINE times more-likely to hit a grenade than if you shot at it with a rifle or a pistol. But because the pattering of buckshot is SO random, it may be just a matter of luck no matter how good of a shot you are.
