I use a Winchester Coohey 30" full choke single shot using BB black ranger cartridges for night feral fox shooting & 150ft would be the accurate limit, after that the pellets start arcing down dramatically, so not much good on a ship.

That is a very cost effective way but the practical application from a helicopter seems difficult. 8-)

Where are the tracer rounds? Blanks, and a planned ditching.

Glad the _____ is working on "Microwave system", to bring these things down safely with out crashing them, from the pilots flying into danger!
