Smile New user from england saying hi

Hi guys,

Just found this forum so I though I should join and say hello. Recently got a couple of cheap greenies and a blue pointer from China via ebay but they just seem so weak.
My last green pointer was much more powerful so I guess its time to spend a little more.
I like the idea of an overspec one and forum user swimswimmer seems well mentioned. Are there any issues with customs for us UK buyers of powerful lasers ?

Yes,, I had noticed that,,however, the last post is 2011 and is pretty much a summary

I think we're still ok here in the Uk, but unfortunately this country is full of idiots and its only a matter of time...

Once this arrives then I will get a blu ray pointer from him. Then after I pick up a nice HID torch then it's time to get a 'big' laser

I've no doubt you will,,,,this 'hobby' is as addictive as they say round these parts.

I've got a couple of 'big' lasers - i've never burst so many black balloons on a daily basis in my life.
Jees,, i'll be 50 in 4 weeks, is this normal?

I think this is the way it should be, living life to the fullest makes one's life worth living and if you do something that u want , it means there is still a freedom of mind inside, which is a good thing!!
I would never let go anything because im too old or too young, even if someone has a problem with it its not my problem..
