SpaceGhost (23971) writes "The Associated Press reports "The Federal Aviation Administration announced six states on Monday that will develop test sites for drones, a critical next step for the march of the unmanned aircraft into U.S. skies". The sites will be in Alaska, Nevada, New York, North Dakota, Texas and Virginia. They quote Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx saying "These test sites will give us valuable information about how best to ensure the safe introduction of this advanced technology into our nation's skies". This is a first step to allowing commercial drone use."

drone hunting (1)

Please do not use pistols or rifles to hunt drones since the bullets can carry a great distance. A shotgun is the only safe weapon to use when firing up at drones.
