New from TacniTion: Depleted Uranium Anti-Drone Loads

drone_loads_product_image_2

I guess we should have seen this coming. Though they say you never do until it’s too late. This afternoon’s email blast from luckygunner.com brings news of the latest thing in personal defense loads. With an administration that has to be embarrassed into positively affirming that they won’t employ drone strikes against American citizens, the free market will fill the demand for those who may not be persuaded. When standard OO buck just isn’t enough to bring down that drone that’s been circling your back yard for the last half hour, you can now employ the same ammo the military uses to penetrate tank armor, albeit at a slightly reduced rate of fire. Press release after the jump . . .

New Depleted Uranium Rounds Specialize in Taking Down Drones!

Listen up Lucky Gunners – We’re thrilled to introduce you to the latest product to hit the virtual shelves of LuckyGunner.com – 12 gauge loads especially made to take down the unwanted survieillance associated with Big Brother’s drones!

These new 1 3/8 oz. loads are capable of slinging pellets made of depleted uranium up to 1 kilometer straight up into the air. We’ve exclusively partnered with Tacnition to get these rounds, which feature the latest in technology.

Be sure to give them a look and ensure your ammo stache at home has a least a few dozen of these rounds before you’re not able to make the purchase without someone looking over your shoulder as you order!

    I’m thinking drones fly a bit higher than 3,000 feet. Like 10 – 15 times higher.

      I’m thinking it’s still April 1…

      1. It is a joke…if you click buy it says so. But it’s still funny and I’d still buy one just for the humor value.

        1. avatar SD3 says:

          People complain about “price gouging” and then actually attempt to buy crap like this?!?

          C’mon, people….

    2. I’m thinking you’re absolutely correct and this is a completely worthless product outside of the cool factor…which is just enough to maybe buy a box and laugh about it, hehe.

      1. avatar Roscoe says:

        Comeon; Too funny that any of y’all fell for this one even for a sec.!!

        But it is cute…kinda like Zombie rounds.

        1. avatar Roscoe says:

          Besides, assuming DiFi’s ammendment doesn’t pass, we can still shoot down the drones with the rocket launchers we all have attached to our “scarry” war like “assault rifles”.

          /sarc, of course/

    If this was some sort of 3″ magnum OO buck Hevi Shot in novelty packaging, I’d buy one.

    1. avatar Thomas M. says:

      +1

  3. avatar fred says:

    These come in 10 ga?

    1. avatar Roscoe says:

      13 Ga only 😉 !

  4. avatar Some guy named Brian says:

    I don’t care if it’s April Fools or not. I want some under my pillow at night to help boost my super powers!

      I have some glassware (bowls, cups, juicer, etc) from the 1930s/1940s colored green with Uranium Di-Oxide, the same stuff they make nuclear fuel rods out of. If you put them under a black light, they fluoresce the stereotypical radioactive green. Look on ebay for Vaseline glass or Uranium glass.

    2. avatar Roscoe says:

      “super powers”?

      Hah!

      It’ll be easier for the ATF and the DHS to FIND YOU when your head glows in the dark!

  5. avatar William Burke says:

    Happy April Fools Day

    Not a laughing matter to Charles Krauthammer (of all people):

  7. avatar Johnny says:

    I was sincerely hoping this was real. You have no idea how many times I’m just walking around when a tank appears 10 feet from my face. At least now I’ll be prepared.

    Riiiight, Depleted uranium for common civilian use-Tomorrow-Snap back to reality

    1. avatar Roscoe says:

      No, Really!

      The Marines are testing it at Camp Arcadia right now!

  9. avatar Loyd says:

    My buddy called me all in a flutter “OMG OMG OMG! They make depleted uranium anti-drone shotgun rounds! OMG OMG OMG” and immediately started going on about how a shotgun can’t hit a drone.
    “Dude. It’s an April Fools joke.”
    “NO! It’s real! Luckygunner sent me an email saying now in stock.”
    “I got the same email. It says in big letters FOR ENTERTAINMENT ONLY”
    “Oh. I didn’t read that far”

  10. avatar SpeleoFool says:

    Wait a sec, shotgun loads? Whose idea was that? Biden’s?

    Then again, I guess it wouldn’t make sense to use depleted uranium in anything more potent, like .223, since everyone knows an AR-15 can penetrate armor anyway….

    Tell that to Anwar Al-alaki or his son, Obama drone striked both of them, and they were American citizens.

      We have inalienable rights as specified in The Constitution! Except when we don’t.

  12. avatar ChrisCicc says:

    This would be a good combo with the CastleOS Home Drone Control software – your drone tracks their drone 😉

    I’ll be glad when It’s April 2.

  14. avatar Air Force TSgt says:

    I wonder if it’s at the new lucky gunner prices of +400%…. cute joke… F-them.

  15. I was told a few years back that depleted uranium ammo was toxic and illegal for civilians to own?!?!? The guy that told me could have been nuts, so I am asking.

    1. avatar Nickbnumbers says:

      Yes, it’s toxic, but its not that bad as lomg as you handle it with gloves and dont eat it. It is still radioactive and will be for a LONG time.

      The only thing “depleted” is the fissile material. What’s left behind is no longer useful for making nuclear bombs, but it’s hella good at making heavier than lead armor penetrators, which when fired in foreign lands also takes care of the radioactive waste disposal problem.

  16. avatar ensitue says:

    Who needs Uranium when you can use any number of calibers loaded with Unobtanium?

  17. avatar Buzzlefutt says:

    And here I was hoping that drones would be the new zombie.

    1. avatar Roscoe says:

      How about drone kits with attachments for the soon to be disenfranchised gun owners.

      Could there be a new business opportunity emerging?

  18. avatar Chip says:

    Yes, I know, April Fools and all that…. but I would like to have a couple of the boxes to put on the shelf for entertainment value.

  19. avatar speedracer5050 says:

    These would be nice to have just for the Shits and Giggles factor!!!

  20. avatar speedracer5050 says:

    These would be nice to have just for the Shits and Giggles factor!!! And besides that imagine the look on the face of your local gun control asshole neighbor when you just happen to drop the hint that you have depleted uranium rounds in your home defense shotty!!

  21. avatar Mr. Lighter says:

    Can I get some in .50BMG?

  22. avatar punmaster says:

    1 kilometer straight up? That will make New Year’s parties very interesting.

  23. avatar Jeh says:

    Nice, but ill stick to my Javelin miss-…I mean long pointy stick.

  24. avatar John says:

    This is so stupid

  25. avatar My Name Is Bob says:

    Glad to see that while I got the “April fools” part of this, I still want them anyway.

  26. avatar Peter says:

    How long before some MSM idiot sees this and goes all twisted panties on the story?
    Remember the Birdman gangsta sights. 🙂

  27. avatar Don says:

    The projectile would be a lot smaller if the weight remains 1 3/8 oz. About 38% smaller. Lead is about 0.4 oz/cm^3 and DU is about 0.6737 oz/cm^3. If the a DU slug was the same size as a 1 3/8 lead slug it would be about 68% heavier, at 2 5/16 oz. Oh and babies with birth defects. April Fools.

  28. avatar GS650G says:

    .50 BMG round might be considered an anti drone device.

  29. avatar merica 7.62x54 says:
