The $40.00 model is perfect. With the $50.00 sport elites, you can't even see the dot. I saw pictures of this on the LCF, and that is why I did not buy them. Trust me, no one wants to be more careful than the man that has only one good eye. If I was you, I would get the red lasershades, (yes they are blue...lol) asap.

I have one that goes over 400mw and I don't use goggles unless I'm getting so close to the point of impact that the green glow blinds me so I can't see what I'm doing... "like lighting a match with the laser off in the distance and me at the receiving end".

As long as you do not get a direct hit, your good.... the problem is the room for error with the higher powers.

Senkat mentioned the 20mw was more dangerous....on that note, the 5 mw is even more dangerous in the hands of a kid that thinks its no different than a flashlight!

Have you ever looked directly into an oncoming laser to see what it looked like?... me either.. but your little brother may decide its a cool thing to try!

You really have to treat these like guns... you can play with them if you know where they are shooting at all times, but you cannot let a kid just play with it.

Shooting into beveled glass lighting fixtures, drinking glasses, mirrors and such whereas you don't really know where all the beams are going to end up is the kink of risky things I'm talking about.

I have a nice pair of goggles, but rarely need them.. but when I do need them, I'm thankful I have them.
When your doing something risky, use the goggles.. if there is no risk, then don't.

I too have to hide my lasers so my grandkids can't find them, just like I would a pistol in the house.

I just took mine to a July 4th party... I had to be stinkin careful where the beam went at all times!

Good post windstrings,
Can I have your herc...LOL. I read your review on it at CPF and it is an awesome device. Nice review too.

I am over the paranoia with my home made red laser. I don't wear my goggles any more unless I am burning up close and I am very careful where I aim the dot. It is super bright and I do not recommend staring at it. I do fully agree as long as the laser is in good careful hands there will not be any problems. It is those around us we need to worry about.
