Russian state-owned arms manufacturer Almaz-Antey has made the world’s first flying rifle, a low-cost drone that carries a Kalashnikov and can follow its target until it is dead. Watch it in action here:

The 23-kilogram drone has a three-meter wingspan, carrying a 12-caliber Vepr 12 semi-automatic shotgun designed after the infamous Kalashnikov rifle. The drone doesn’t require a runaway or catapult to operate, as it launches and lands vertically.

Remember why, specifically, the Bill of Rights was written...remember its purpose. It was written to limit the power of government over the individual.

That's a video of an early Aeroflot passenger plane. Landing fields being somewhat scarce in 1930's Russia they would fly non-stop from point A to point B and literally "drop off" passengers at various points along the way. I hear the in flight service was pretty good, though - free vodka and all you can drink...


Gunnery, gunnery, gunnery.
Hit the target, all else is twaddle!
