Airsoft Rifle Laser Mod: Laserhard

Airsoft Rifle Laser Mod: Laserhard
Decent Airsoft guns can look quite realistic and menacing. But YouTuber styropyro figured his Airsoft gun wasn’t geeky enough, so he gutted it out and converted it to a laser rifle.

Sith Series Laser: Double the Laser, Double the Danger, Double the Lawsuits
Wicked Lasers nearly got burned by Lucasfilm because one of their lasers looked a lot like a lightsaber.

All Dr. Evil wanted was sharks with frickin’ laser beams on their heads. For now, he will have to settle for helicopters with bad attitudes instead.
