Bagpipe Drone "Skeet" Shooting

What, no skeet-shooting category?
  [vote for,

The title pretty much says it all. The drone would be launched from a modified skeet-launching device, and would include a bagpipe and appropriate hardware for inflating it (well, drones can have a plentitude of air-moving propellers already...), and for playing it automatically.

Because of its size, this drone needs to be launched rather further away from the shooter, than a normal skeet. Other than that, the goal is the same, to shoot the thing down. For those annoyed by the 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? http://en.wikipedia...wiki/Bagpipes#Drone

       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.

       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?
