As summer approaches, three things are occurring. The heat is turning people into maniacs, water is on the minds of most that reside in this smoldering hot Southern California, and the guns are coming out.
Apparently beach bod guns are not all we’re dealing with here. Why didn’t we offer this as a Mega Man Cave item you ask? We feel the same exact way people. Damnit anyway!
The real issue is, we do not have the guts…or guns rather, to pull off a gadget of this magnitude. Oh, but Randy Smith from Fresno does. Shall we call him saint or sinner?

Randy Smith, 54, must have been feeling confident about his guns. This past Saturday in Fresno, Ca, Smith was found roaming the streets like a hyena, carrying a super soaker watergun. He has reportedly converted this harmless child’s toy into a 2-gauge shotgun.
“So they’re just relying on, maybe this gun barrel will hold up. Well, you could be putting a gun next to your head, or you could be putting a hand grenade next to your head”, said Hudson.
As one would assume, this conversion from innocent toy to killing machine, is not only illegal, but dangerous for the manufacturer. Barrels that are makeshift such as this, can explode under pressure, sending shrapnel and gunpowder soaring every which way. Best watch now.
Randy Smith has been in and out of jail since 1994. Go figure. He was arrested Saturday night and released Sunday on gun-related charges.
