A Boyce man was arrested Saturday afternoon after he shot a neighbor’s car with a BB gun that he had illegally converted into a shotgun, officials said.He shot his neighbor's car. Not normally a good idea, and how might one convert a BB gun into a shotgun?
According to the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office, Pickering taped a pipe to the end of a BB gun that held a shotgun shell. When Pickering fired the BB gun it caused the shotgun shell to be discharged. The homemade gun was very dangerous.I'm still having trouble envisioning this thing. A pipe holds a shotgun shell. Taped to the barrel of a BB gun. When you shoot the BB, it hits the primer of the shotgun shell. Yeah, I'd say that is dangerous, on so many levels.
Pickering was booked into the Rapides Parish Jail.Yeah.
