The page says "It can be destroyed completely by five gliders, as shown below.". This can be reduced to 2 gliders:
x = 47, y = 26, rule = b3/s23 bo$2bo$3o6$15bo$15b4o$16b4o10b2o$5b2o9bo2bo9bobo$5b2o9b4o8b3o8b2o$15b 4o8b3o9b2o$15bo12b3o$29bobo$30b2o7$45b2o$44b2o$46bo!

- That's okay. If you're destroying a working glider gun, it's always going to produce some number of gliders, and then stop. If you don't want those last two output gliders, send the destroying gliders in 60 ticks earlier. The gun will be "destroyed completely", as advertised. Dvgrn (talk) 12:26, 2 June 2017 (UTC)
