Something new. I thought it was pretty cool .Got it to identify critters at night. I wouldn't shoot more than 150 yards at night anyone so this should do the identify job nicely .

Well, the title did say lasers:rolleyes:.
The Food and Drug Administration prohibits the sale of lasers to consumers in the US that are more than 5-milliwatts in power (which is so lame, it's useless).
This is because we are stupid and can't be trusted with dangerous things.
I did some digging and it is legal to buy, own and possess one that is more powerful (just don't point it at airplanes:rolleyes:).
You just have to buy it offshore.
Direct from the manufacturer, they aren't expensive:
Here's the 250mw I have on the .308 :

It's bright enough that you can see it good at 100 yards in full sunlight without a scope.
If I had to fire the rifle where I couldn't shoulder it and sight thru the scope, I can still aim it and hit.
I bought a 100mw first and it was plenty bright. Here it is compared to a 5mw at 30 yards in daylight:

The downsides:
Does not come with pages of cautions like don't point it at reflective surfaces like glass, chrome, mirrors etc.
Takes 2-3 weeks to arrive.
You have to buy a battery charger, (Amazon) then you discover that there is a rechargeable version of the CR123A :D.

(need to take some pics of the 250mw in action:bang Head:)
