For every solution, there is a problem waiting to be created.

its a clever marketing ploy, like all of the "Zombie" ammo they came out with a couple of years ago.

Hunting rounds in a fancy box.

I'd like to get a personal EMP device for these types of things.

the emp device would be quieter and harder to trace.
Maybe a cell phone jammer could be invented by the same company that markets the emp device

When the operator holds the drone still enough I've found that a properly placed 25.06 round or 3 will allow the drone to go home but usually keeps it from returning to me.

#4 buck or even bird works fine too. Actually I suspect most anything would do? But "Dronemunition" - love it

Cell phone jammers are relatively easy. You just need to make more noise in the frequency range than the cell phone can transmit.

Same with a radio control car. But most drones have a return home feature when they lose radio signal so that doesn't help take it down.

You can build an emp too. Problem is it will take out everything you own also since they are harder to make directional. Energy like that likes to explode out vs sent out an antenna like a jammer.
