Gonna use a full-auto AK? <g>
I wonder if you could modify to your needs, one of the OpenSource kits that are out there.

I had the 90rd drum at the Machine Gun Meet that time. Man, those go through rounds like crazy. I had it on semi until I got the feel, then let loose on a van. My burst looked like a heartbeat pulse and the long slow curve into a straight line as I raked the van side. The owner liked it. Those are fun guns. It cost me $25 to do that, so feeding one would be very expensive. A mini gun would be even worse, using up one annual paycheck per day of use, I reckon. Pass!
I'm still holding out for a nice, quiet, vaporizing laser. It would:
A) Keep thumpers from getting to the door. and B) Remove any of that pesky "evidence" stuff. and C) Eliminate local dogs who shit on the lawn/cats who pee on my porch. and D) Be lots of fun to watch (for very brief, smoky periods.)
I'd use a swamp cooler housing with a small motor to raise the case enough to shoot under. That won't look too strange on the roof. Now, where can I find a nice 50kv laser for a Benjy or less...?

The whole point of robotic targeting should be one shot accuracy and ammo conservation. Locate target, fire once accurately, if target is still moving fire again accurately, repeat until no movement.

Iggy! It's not worth it! Just build a better fence around your warehouse!
Disposing of bodies is _always_ harder than you think it'll be.

Iggy, I think I read an article about a game ranch in Texas that was already doing a mobile version of this for handicapped hunters. Basically a hunt by wire method. It was not automated. Just remote control, but they may have already solved some of the problems you may run into.
