    Green laser pointers

    I really need one of those and i know they can be a bit expensive.
    Does anyone know here were i could purchase one other than the internet for now? Like maybe at some big chain store perhaps.
    I have a $100 bill from Christmas, so if I have to use that to buy it, am i able to purchase a Visa gift card from Wachovia? Im 15, so i dont know if i have to be 16 or 18.
    Haha thats funny, I just read Taerom sumbit that post on reading about those lasers. I was just reading about them too 15 minutes ago. LOL

    The difference in price for those green laser pointers is the quality of the laser diode, as in how long it lasts before it blows.

    Being in with amateur astronomy, everyone and their dog has one of these for pointing out things in the sky (well they are useful). The cheap ones don't last very long. You get what you pay for.

    You basically need one of these, they overdrive them or something to make them much more powerful than the normal green ones.

    I think there's a video on that site of them burning stuff with one of them.

    I think you will get bored of that device real quick unless you are going to enjoy it with the assistance of some delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol.

    Waste of money if you ask me, go out and buy some stuff for your bike.

    I'm sure the OP reserves his right to get bored. Powerful green lasers are actually pretty cool, and surprisingly entertaining.

    So powerful you may reach the dark side of the moon.
    Woah thats awesome them LOL.

    Ouch $159.00 I could buy a new decent crankset for that.

    You know, the $100 ones seems like a good price for one that goes 6 miles.

    Cool link
