It will work for this, though. She might finally get some use out of it. Mulan15262 (talk) 04:21, 6 June 2017 (UTC)

I wrote a short little explanation that needs a lot more. Maybe I'll add more after school. LordFlashmeow (talk) 15:56, 5 June 2017 (UTC)LordFlashmeow

There's a much simpler, if less elegant, solution in buying a Mossberg 500. OldCorps (talk) 16:20, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

As I read it, the drones were flying around her, in the first place, because people can't control them properly. I find the comic even funnier, reading this way. (New here. Is the below signature the right way to sign?) <saim> -- Saim (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Wasn't there another comic where black hat builds something similar that shoots birds or squirrels or something? I can't find it now —Artyer (talk|ctb) 19:36, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

I think you mean this one 382: Trebuchet, where Megan has a laser canon to shoot squirrels from the bird feeder... ;-) So in that way it fits here, as it is again Megan and Cueball. I'll link it in the description. I found it by looking at the Category:Squirrels. --Kynde (talk) 19:05, 6 June 2017 (UTC)

I thought this was a parallel to North Korean ICBMs and US anti-missle technology... (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I also got the impression that this was an ICBM metaphor. Note the news in recent days: North Korea missile launch Anti-missile Launch-- 22:12, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

Maybe Cueball's problems came with him from here? That's right, Jacky720 just signed this (talk | contribs) 23:20, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

Something like the old riddle: Why do elephants paint their toenails red? To hide in cherry trees. Have you ever seen an elephant in a cherry tree? See? It works. 04:32, 6 June 2017 (UTC)

Ah, the classic solution in search of a problem. -- 12:34, 6 June 2017 (UTC)

I'm having a geekgasm that I was talking about the concept of an anti-drone turret in the Comment section of the Eagle comic, now here Randall does one, LOL! Synergy! Though I was talking about an automated one, :) Next step. - NiceGuy1 04:48, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
