Drone Munitions

Emmett, Idaho ( – Snake River Shooting Products and Consulting Inc. (SRSP) is excited to announce Drone Munition shot shell based defense rounds are now shipping.

The rounds are a 12 gauge 3″ shot shell solution aimed at defending against drone-based privacy concerns and terror!

Drones, or light quad-copters, are one of the best-selling new gadgets on the market, and were among the top new Christmas gifts given in 2014. Stories about drones are hitting the news daily in both positive and negative light. While a great product idea, unfortunately, drones have a tremendous potential for misuse and these misuses have been happening more and more frequently. (Read PETA To Acquire Drones To Keep Tabs On Hunters)

With the ability to carry on board cameras, drones have been and are being used for spying on unsuspecting neighbors and others without their permission. With little regulation surrounding drone use, there is much confusion about what a person may do to defend against drone threats.

Prepare For The Drone Apocalypse
Prepare For The Drone Apocalypse

Recently, a gentleman shot down a drone that was spying on his daughter sunbathing near their pool in the backyard. There is an ongoing investigation as to whether it was a legal area to discharge a short range firearm. With this in mind, it is imperative the laws of proper firearm use are followed when using this product.

In addition to privacy concerns, drones can endanger people with weapons or explosives mounted to them. Recently a man announced and demonstrated in a YouTube video (below) how he had mounted a GLOCK pistol to a drone and devised a system that allowed him to remotely fire it. Drones have also been documented flying dangerously close to commercial aircraft, and the threat is becoming more and more real for them to be used for acts of terrorism.

Drone Munition was created to provide defense against the danger caused when drones are misused. Drone Munition is lead free, safe for the environment and provides a very high quality load that will effectively disable a drone encroaching your property’s airspace. As a side note, the round also makes for a very high end hunting load for ducks, geese or turkeys.

Our friends at Lucky Gunner will be carrying the Drone Munition loads in both 2 shot and BB. Ammo can be purchased by visiting Several distributors including Axelson Tactical and Texas Ammo Group will be carrying Drone Munition. Dealers can reach out to these distributors or directly to our office to track down this great new product. SRSP will also be offering a line of merchandise to include T-shirts, targets and hats featuring the Drone Munition brand.

SRSP, who already manufactures Lone Survivor Marcus Luttrell's Team Never Quit ammunition line, sees the Drone Munition line as a fantastic compliment to its products.

“We are very excited to be manufacturing a product focused on defending our freedoms. We see this line as a game changer in the industry and as an important defense against rising threats to our way of life,” stated Casey Betzold, president of Snake River Shooting Products.

    1. The FAA has been tasked by Congress to develop new rules for unmanned aircraft, including model aircraft and “Drones” The new rules should be out by the end of September 2015. The FAA is supposed to preempt the field of aircraft (including flying toys) and establish uniform rules that will apply equally everywhere in the US. There was no word on whether or not they would address the issue of cameras on said unmanned aircraft, or provide for any penalties for interfering with said toy aircraft.

      All that aside for the moment, consider this. You have the absolute right to walk into a bar in downtown Detroit, Oakland, East Los Angeles, where ever, and announce in a loud voice that you think the kkk should be federally funded to remove people of color from the US. Or go into the southern US and express your opinions about how great General Sherman was, or to a Hells Angels favorite watering hole and and say Mongols Rule! etc. and it would be illegal for the people there to respond with violence against your person. You, (or your next of kin) could insist on filing criminal charges against those people, but it will not and cannot undue the a$$ Whoopin you will get for doing it. People have been killed for less. Don’t be stupid, nobody likes that guy.

      Just because you can “legally” do something, does not mean that you should actually do it.

    2. wow so much misinformation here in the article and comments
      The news article that they are hyping states multi rotor was in back yard 10′ off the ground when he shot it. Actually was at between 250-300′ off the ground. Idiot shot in neighbor hood. If 19′ he endangered his neighbors more that the drone did. Use a broom to knock it down

      Yes they are some idiots not flying multi Toyota correct just like there are idiots with guns. Based in comments here maybe the liberals can use them as evidence why both should be baned. I love how everyone jumps in what ever story the news is suing to whip people’s fear into a frenzy. Shooting at such and such by legal gun owner. Do we need more back ground check. Drone flying near school. School in lockdown with armed parents guarding the grounds

      Give me a damn break. Multi-rotor as well as guns cars and anything else have to be used with common sense. Failure to do that will result in useless regulations that do more harm than good

      This company is irresponsible and as a gun owner and a “drone” flyer I will not buy anything from them. I have been in both hobbies for over 30 years with no incidents

    3. As far as I’m concerned, threatening or not… if one of those “toys”, “aircraft”, whatever you care to call it comes hovering over my property I’m taking it as invasion of privacy and shooting it down, butthurt be damned. You don’t want to lose your toy, keep it away from people’s homes.

    4. Why not? Hornady makes Zombie Max ammo. At least drones are real. Maybe some manufacturer will make Blob ammo before next Summer. There’s a big Blob problem in nearby Phoenixville, PA 🙂

    5. FYI …… Straight out of the FAA regs for GENERAL Flight Operations, §91.119 Minimum safe altitudes: General. ……. (c) Over other than congested areas. An altitude of 500 feet above the surface, except over open water or sparsely populated areas. In those cases, the aircraft may not be operated closer than 500 feet to any person, vessel, vehicle, or structure. …………. So, if this drone was operating in opposition to these regs, then it MAY have been flying illegally. With that being said, if the firing of firearms was also illegal, then both parties are guilty. Here is the link to the FAA GUIDELINES FOR MAO’s (Model Aircraft Operations) which this guy may have been violating as well. So for those of you that think you can fly your drone anywhere you want and that I can’t do anything about it, think again!! ….. As I said earlier, if your drone is flying outside of these guidelines over my house with a camera on it, it’s probably coming down. As for the guy that was talking about how poor the quality is on these cameras, apparently he hasn’t kept up with current camera technology.

    6. When the guy shot down the drone that was in the news, it happened to be flying over his back yard where his daughters were sun bathing and it was low enough for him to see that it had a camera on it. (His mistake was firing a firearm in an area that restricts firearms). FYI ….. that drone was flying below the required ceiling for aircraft according to the FAA. And even if it wasn’t, if some pervert is flying a drone (especially with a camera on it) over my backyard where my daughters are sun bathing, that thing is coming down!! And unlike some of you, I can tell the difference between a drone with a camera and a passenger aircraft. I live in an area where firing firearms is legal including any size and type of legal firearm. For those of you that want to permit a drone with a camera to fly over YOUR backyard and video tape YOUR wives or daughters while sunbathing, I feel sorry for them. Is that what you call protecting your family?

      1. No, actually you’re totally wrong. The guy was arrested for shooting it down. It wasn’t flying over his backyard and the pilot has provided flight logs that prove this. As far as “flying below the required ceiling for aircraft”, do you have any idea what you’re talking about? Apparently not. There is actually a MAXIMUM altitude that these aircraft have to stay BELOW, without being registered and having a flight plan, etc. Get your facts right before you make wild claims that are completely untrue.

        Here’s the article for anyone interested:

    7. P.S. dimwit buyers, it is a federal felony to shoot at any aircraft and a quadcopter is an aircraft by FAA standards. Anyone who thinks this is a good idea, please buy some and start shooting so we can remove you from the public domain.

    8. This is the most irresponsible ad I’ve ever seen. So, this company actually condones breaking local and laws by shooting personal property that is considered aircraft by the FAA? I see huge lawsuits in your future and oh.. I will never purchase from you again.

      1. No, it is no more illegal to shoot down a drone than to shoot down anything else that’s someone else’s property. Morons on the internet keep referring to the laws for FAA registered aircraft when these drones are non-registered toy model aircraft.

        Please stop repeating nonense you read posted by ignorant drone owners and go to FAA website to see their detailed descriptions of what constitutes a drone that is illegal to shoot down.

        Image that, getting information from the official sources instead of armchair pilots on a web forum lolz.

    9. My next email is to Marcus Lutrells widow. You guys are irresponsible and I hope that someone does shoot down a drone… Or better yet wings one that ends up doing a ton of property damage in the ensuing crash… Praying it happens and you both get sued…

      Thanks Urban-RC for straightening the rumors out… People buy this ammo if your plan is to become felons!

    10. Any one that fires at my quad WILL have that fire returned with precision rounds discharged from precision firearms utilized by a qualified EXPERT marksman.

      That being said, the cameras mounted on hobby grade RC aircraft have such a wide field of view that they are entirely useless as surveillance equipment. Also, you do NOT own the airspace above your property. Therefor, any one firing at ANY aircraft in flight can not use the privacy or personal property excuse. It IS a felony to fire at ANY aircraft. This includes RC aircraft.

      I find it truly sad that a business that is conservative in nature would play along with the liberal hype and absolute ignorance regarding RC aircraft. Learn something before propogating lies and hate.

      1. Hay boy ~ !! Your going to shoot at people just because they broke your toy ~ ? You need a butt-whopping, your just a juvenile delinquent minded, stupid person. Down here in Texas, your toys and probably you would not last too long. Your “precision rounds discharged from precision firearms utilized by a qualified EXPERT marksman” will get your qualified EXPERT marksman killed or life in a Texican Prison. Your threat to fire on people is a criminal action in Texas.
        The Legal Issues of Threats in Texas ~
        Sometimes, people let their words get the best of them. In the heat of the moment or in a fit of anger, we have all likely said some things that we regret. Unfortunately, you can’t take back some statements when you have cooled off and are thinking rationally. If you threaten another person in the state of Texas, you may end up facing criminal charges.

        What exactly constitutes a threat in the eyes of the law? This is an important question with some very serious legal implications. Check out the rest of this article to find out what can happen if you threaten someone else in Texas.

        What Is A Threat?
        Under the law, a threat can take many forms. What may seem like a harmless series of words to one person may constitute a very serious threat in the eyes of another person. In general, however, a threat can lead to legal consequences if it meets the following criteria:

        It makes another person reasonably fear that they will suffer a bodily injury
        It makes another person reasonably fear for their life
        It makes another person reasonably fear their property is in danger of harm
        So, according to the law, a threat is a statement or a physical action that places another person in a reasonable fear that their safety or the safety of their loved ones or property is in imminent danger of serious harm.

        Threat Examples
        By the legal definition of a threat, a wide array of actions may be considered threatening. There is no legal requirement regarding the actual content of a criminal threat. Any statement or action that makes another person fear for their safety may legally be considered threatening behavior.

        For example, Alex and Jamal are neighbors. They regularly have arguments about the line between their property. One day, Jamal starts to argue with Alex about this issue and the argument gets heated. Jamal tells Alex that he is going to beat him into a pulp. While doing so, he takes off his shirt, throws items around the yard and yells at the top of his voice. Alex goes inside to call the police and they arrest Jamal for assault.

        In Texas, a person can be arrested and charged with assault even if they never lay a hand on another person. As long as they make another person reasonably fear for their safety, charges may be filed.

        In another example, Robert has a crush on his co-worker Wanda. When Robert finds out that Wanda has a new boyfriend, he sends her emails threatening to beat up her new boyfriend. Wanda contacts the police, who arrest Robert for harassment and stalking.

        Even though Robert did not physically attack anyone and he did not directly threaten Wanda, he can still be arrested because his threats were serious enough to make Wanda fear for the safety of her boyfriend.

        Severity of Threats
        In Texas, there are no specific laws regarding the content of threats or their relative severity. For example, a person who tells their co-worker that they are going to beat them up may face arrest for their threat just as someone who threatens to kill their co-worker. However, some circumstances can enhance the potential penalties for a threat.

        For example, a person who threatens their neighbor while waving a gun may be charged with aggravated assault. This applies even if the gun is unloaded and no physical contact occurs.

        Also, a person who threatens a peace officer, elected official or who threatens a large group of people may face enhanced charges. Threatening an elected official or a group of people may lead to charges of terroristic threats, which carry a much higher penalty.

        Legal Penalties
        In Texas, being convicted of threatening behavior can lead to severe consequences. For example, a simple assault conviction is a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by:

        Up to one year in county jail
        A fine of up to $4000
        Being convicted of harassment is a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by:

        Up to six months in county jail
        A fine of up to $2000
        Stalking is a very serious crime. A conviction for stalking is a felony of the third degree, punishable by:

        Two to 10 years in state prison
        A fine of up to $10,000
        Any of these crimes can be enhanced if they include the use of a weapon or if the guilty party has been previously convicted of similar offenses. In addition, these crimes can lead to mandatory probation, restraining orders and court-ordered therapy or treatment programs.

        In addition to legal penalties, the victims of these offenses may bring civil lawsuits against the person who threatened them.

        Legal Defenses
        Many legal defenses in cases involving threats will focus on the claims of the alleged victim. For instance, the defense may argue that there is no evidence to show that the plaintiff ever experienced any real fear for their safety. Since fear is a subjective emotional experience, the defense attorney may point out the plaintiff’s behavior as a sign that they were not actually in fear for their safety.

    11. As life nra member….a nssf member….a idpa member and a nsf member I will make it a point to bring up your misinformed article. The name of your company will be posted in every club I shoot at east of the Mississippi. …..before you write and publish something like this you and the company mfg the ammo should do their research

    12. Advertising ammo for this purpose is massively irresponsible! All we need is rednecks out trying to shoot down drones because websites like this scared them into thinking Obama is coming for their guns and freedom. Let me fast forward to the real ending of the story. Redneck shoots down drone. Redneck pays for drone. Redneck hit with thousands in fines for firing a weapon in an area they shouldn’t. Redneck loses.
      Yee haw.

    13. Once again I am disgusted to be a gun owner and guilty by association with these turds that are promoting a felony. Shooting a gun at another person’s property is a felony. Calling the cops on the person and having him arrested for trespassing. Not illegal. Shame on you and anyone who purchases this ammo

    14. This company is pandering to pinheads, encouraging them to break the law. UrbanRC’s comment above is correct; it is a FEDERAL CRIME to shoot at ANY aerial vehicle, even if it is over your property. Go ahead and try it; see where it gets you.

    15. Way to promote gun safety. Fire at aircraft straight up in the air to destroy kids toys or aircraft. Very smart. And people wonder why the libtards wanna take away our guns.

    16. This is the most ridiculous thing i have ever seen. It’s going to be funny when someone uses these shells and they get charged with a felony and they sue you because you made it seem like it was ok to randomly shoot down other peoples radio controlled devices.

    17. I fly racing drones as well as cruiser drones. I dont really give a rip about looking in your qindows or invading your privacy. So with that said i think i will start up an ammunition line and call it dumbass reducers. So screw you and your drone ammunition.

    18. It’s ironic that the scare tactics being used here is the exact type of scare tactics being used to deprive us of the right to bear arms.

      There’s a lot of ‘drone’ owners (we dislike the term and prefer multirotor or UAV) who are also avid gun owners. I’ll be sure to spread the word to our fellow enthusiasts to support retailers who don’t subscribe to this hypocrisy.

      Boycott and retailers that carry their ‘anti-drone’ such as:

      Axelson Tactical and Texas Ammo Group

    19. Let’s talk about a few points that are totally incorrect here:

      Statement: “With the ability to carry on board cameras, drones have been and are being used for spying on unsuspecting neighbors and others without their permission. With little regulation surrounding drone use, there is much confusion about what a person may do to defend against drone threats”

      FALSE; privacy laws still apply, regardless of the medium used to capture the images. Even then, ask yourself what is more conspicuous; a long-range camera lens, or a multirotor that sounds like a swarm of angry bees at ~60dba?

      Statement: “Recently, a gentleman shot down a drone that was spying on his daughter sunbathing near their pool in the backyard. There is an ongoing investigation as to whether it was a legal area to discharge a short range firearm. With this in mind, it is imperative the laws of proper firearm use are followed when using this product.”

      MOSTLY FALSE: Yes, the gunman shot down a drone. The flight footage and data was made publicly available, and not only was not not filming the guy’s daughter, but it wasn’t even over his yard. Furthermore, all airspace is regulated by the US Government. Your property ends where the grass grows. Even the airspace inside your house is technically regulated by the FAA.

      The gunman was also ordered to pay for the property he destroyed — the only question is whether or not he will also face fines in excess of $200,000 and 20 years in prison for shooting at an aircraft.

      Statement: “In addition to privacy concerns, drones can endanger people with weapons or explosives mounted to them. Recently a man announced and demonstrated in a YouTube video how he had mounted a GLOCK pistol to a drone and devised a system that allowed him to remotely fire it. Drones have also been documented flying dangerously close to commercial aircraft, and the threat is becoming more and more real for them to be used for acts of terrorism.”

      MOSTLY FALSE: The kid (not man) in question built the system as part of a science project and tested it on his family’s land out in the boonies. He was also dumb enough to post the footage on youtube. The system in question was also incredibly inaccurate, very loud, and not very sneaky. A concealed-carry permit will get a firearm into many more places than a drone will.

      1. “Furthermore, all airspace is regulated by the US Government. Your property ends where the grass grows.”

        That’s false you own the usable airspace over your property. The courts have yet to define what constitutes “usable airspace” though any airspace over 500ft has been defined as a “public airway”.

        Now I’m not saying you should shoot down anything within 500ft above your property. But if you’re flying your multirotor below the height of my house and not just around the edges but near my house. It’s getting shot down because I live out in the country and it’d take the cops 45 minutes just to get here.

        1. Bingo! Nobody owns the airspace above your property for at least the first 80′ and above that level flying with a drone is still considered invasion of privacy. Further, flying within the airspace above what is under control of the property owner requires FAA registration, licensing, etc. and especially PERMISSION, a flight plan, etc. and operating at altitude of 500′ or more.

          These silly kids think they can just take over the sky without realizing what it takes to own and operate a real aircraft instead of a toy

    20. Is there a tin foil hat included with every order?
      Great, use ignorance and fear to push a product that, if used as advertised would likely result in a potentially dangerous confrontation. Or worse.

      Guns aren’t the problem. Stupid people with them are.

      You should be ashamed of yourselves for marketing such an asinine product.

      1. I wish someone would shoot at my property.
        In Oregon, it is against the law to shoot my multicolor out of the sky.
        If it crashes and burns down you house, you will loose the case it court.
        Don’t be the dummy going to jail for trying to stop me from flying.
        Your better off, shooting yourself!

    21. Oh the irony, gun owners using the tools others have been using against them to try and justify a need for a product. With all your scare tactics in this sales pitch, how about the fact that a single gun owner can wreak more devistation much easier than any drone could. Nothing different about this product than any other ammo already out there. Sign of a crappy company is one that uses scare tactics to push there products.

    22. Although interesting, the question that comes to mind is, what would be the big advantage of this Drone 12 gauge shot shell ammo, over the standard 3″ steel shot #2 or BB shot shells?

        1. My thoughts exactly. Regardless, I personally wouldn’t shoot at something like this. I would instead, contact law enforcement and try to resolve the issue via legal channels. But that’s just me. First and foremost in a matter like this, I would want to know if the owner/operator is doing something illegal or not. If not, then shooting at it and destroying property would then cause me to become the criminal. Don’t take the law into your own hands folks, there could be very severe consequences for doing that! And no, I’m not a’s just my way of thinking about this and what I would do in an instance like this.

        1. Completely wrong. FAA classifies these as toys, “model aircraft” which are not illegal to shoot down. Those illegal to shoot down are registered, licensed, cannot fly under 500′, and a load of other requirements, none of which are met by these toy drones.

          Stop spreading misinformation in ignorance. This is all on FAA’s website. THANK YOU.

          1. Just checked. Latest rulings do state drones are “aircraft” and subject to FAA. In other words, yup, it really is against US Federal law. Didn’t check other nationalities however.

      1. I’m a HUGE 2A supporter, and believe privacy is something we need to care about, but seriously, our hobby drones are NOT spying on people. Government drones? Sure, Google, yes, this site, absolutely collecting data on you, but our hobby drones are out having a great time enjoying nature. Flying up in the air is a blast. IF by some chance an idiot is flying over your yard at least than 30-50 feet, and hovering around your yard, sure, call the cops, find the guy, talk to him, but every single example so far that has been in the news turned out to NOT even be over the property OR several hundred feet in the air, which is NOT spying whether it’s over your “airspace” or not. Cameras on our drones do not have zoom, past 20 feet it’s hard to tell 2 people apart. Then you have what happened today, a drone found an missing elderly man that was gone for 3 days. Drone was up 20 minutes and spotted him. How would you feel if this guy volunteered his hobby drone to look for your dad, grandpa or friend and some idiot “shot it down” because he “assumed” it was spying. Seriously, tinfoil hat much? Watch less movies and tv and maybe get some real world experience. Show me a really good Drone Spy story that has some real video and photos, not something staged on youtube to get hits. I’ve yet to see a single story that was proven about an actual drone spying. You all are believing the same media you bitch about when they do stories about guns.

      2. Some of you idiots are so stupid it’s ridiculous. UAV’s are considered aircraft by FAA definition. Shooting at an aircraft is a federal felony, not to mention just plain stupid. Believe it or not, there are plenty of respectful drone operators out here just trying to make a living. I can promise you this… You shoot my drone down and you had better PRAY to your God of choice that the police find you before I do.

        1. I promise you that if your drone is hovering over my property and I feel my family may be in danger. You BETTER HOPE THE POLICE FIND ME BEFORE YOU DO AND IF NOT THEN YOU BETTER HOPE THEY GET HERE QUICK! Not you or any other idiot has the right to endanger my family or anyone’s family! I have the greatest respect for law enforcement and the law in general. I would NEVER do anything to intentionally break any law.But I will do what I feel I must to protect my family! I think drones are great when used responsibly. When they are not is when I have a problem with them.

          1. Joe,
            Please tell me how exactly a plastic quadcopter weighing about 3 pounds makes you “FEEL THAT MY FAMILY IS IN DANGER”?
            By the tone of your post you are completely uninformed about what a toy quadcopter is and probably have never seen one. I’d suggest that you go to a local hobby store and see one for yourself and talk to the staff there to get some useful information about them. Perhaps that will help calm your worries over them.

          2. Endangering your family? Bwhahahahahaha! Wow, people are frighteningly stupid sometimes. If your kid was flying a plastic toy helicopter and your neighbor shot it down and said, “It was endangering my family”, would you be okay with that?

            1. YES! If junior is not responsible enough to keep his drone off other people’s property then he shouldn’t have it. The last thing I’d want is to alienate and potentially be sued by my neighbors so a kid can misbehave.

              Keep your property ON your property. It’s laughable that you would even pose such a scenario as “what if your kid is doing something wrong” as if it should be allowed.

          3. Drones endangering your family? Really? Last I checked, 3 pound drones have never killed anyone. Guns on the other hand, kill about 30,000 people EVERY YEAR IN THIS COUNTRY! Idiots with guns are clearly a much bigger threat to public safety than drones.

            1. Really!? Guns don’t kill people and I certainly don’t run around in my neighbor’s yard waving a gun. I have this bastard flying over my house in late evening with a loud drone and I can see the video camera. I will be asking the cops if I can blast away.

              If you pilot want to be’s have to fly plastic toys then go to a drone park in say … Iran out in the desert. I hope the FAA shuts you guys down big time.

      3. I both shoot and fly drones. I’m a little confused regarding how a 3 pound drone is going to put someone’s family at risk. This idiot ammo company is just using something that’s hot and in the news to publicize their product. And they’re doing so very irresponsibly. Just another dumb ass group of marketing strategists who only look at the bottom line and don’t give a damn about who they stomp on…

      4. You people should think a little about solutions. No laws against a fishing net on your property. couple flag poles dry your net between them at 4 corners of your property. Keep what you catch right.
