Question Good Laser for FUN?

Hey guys, so I'm wondering what your opinions are on buying a laser for fun. AKA not a laser that will instantly blind somebody. (And I know all lasers damage eyes, I just don't want something terribly extreme.) I'm not looking to spend a whole lot, probably less than $100. Anybody have any suggestions?

hmm lasers are fun, I would say most lasers can blind giving bad luck or bad practices, I prefer to see a huge honking bright beam to let me know where I don't want to be. I think you could a get a decent 100mw green or perhaps a 1w blue for a hundred buck give or take, 100 bucks is like 300mw of blue ray. Key question being whats you favorite color and what to you tend to do with it. Also you will need good laser goggles of the right wavelength for your choice. Don't skimp on the eye protection,

AND DON"T USE IT AS A SELF DEFENSE WEAPON:P

^ every one of those lasers breaks within a week.

I'm talking something that's not some MIC garbage but also won't reflect off of a mirror and kill my dog.

You want a laser ask someone here to build it for you, unless you want dpss then for cheap check out o-like or any other laser shop, we have a shop reviews here from every shop just about. Once again I would start with whats you favorite color and what do you see yourself using it for? I cannot think of a laser I would have fun with that would be safe to get hit in the eye with but our definition of fun is not the same most likely.

LaserGlow Anser Series 3-5mW
LaserGlow makes one just for you.. this is also green in colour, not harmful to eyes as it's a class IIIa laser <5mW.
Green colour will make a brighter dot than red.
