The title pretty much says it all. The drone would be launched
from a modified skeet-launching device, and would include a
hardware for inflating it (well, drones can have a plentitude of
propellers already...), and for playing it automatically.
of its size, this drone needs to be launched rather
away from the shooter, than a normal skeet. Other than that,
goal is the same, to shoot the thing down. For those annoyed by
sound of a bagpipe, this should be an especially desirable goal.
An alternative goal might be to shoot the bagpipe bag without
shooting the drone. The "skeets" will cost a lot less, that way,
if the drones can be re-used.
Confusing use of "drone" presumably intentional?

||Oh god, he mentioned b******s...
||Kind of like the military airplane towing the target for the gunner to practice on ?
||Since we're now beginning a generation that's going to need to know how to shoot down drones, I guess this may be a good idea. But with the bagpipes a blind shooter could hit the target.
||[+] For target practice. Send 'em up.
||Thinking about it, no one has done much research
into B******s once they go faster than the speed of
sound...or perhaps it's all in Area 52?
