first line of defense

By now surely you have heard that several middle eastern
types were snooping around asking questions about crop
dusters, without any apparent knowledge of which end of
a wheat stalk one dusts.

Suppose some yahoo is seen flying low over the burbs spraying
something. One would have to assume he is a terrorist hoping
to do some houris that night. F16s would be scrambled, but in
the mean time, the first line of defense would be proles with
hunting rifles. I figure the simplest possible attack would be
some kind of poison gas. To make such a thing effective,
would not the terrorist need to fly low enough to be
vulnerable to small arms fire?

Nowthen, if I am ready to go down to the local sporting
goods store to look at hunting rifles specifically to help this
young man meet his houris, what would you recommend?
Thirty aught six semiauto? spike
