Default How could a U.S citizen obtain a laser pointer >5mw?

I'm trying to give one to my little brother for Christmas.
Bonus points if you can get a green laser >10mw for >50$

What's so entertaining about that to you?

Although a 5 second Google search would have answered the ops question along with the giant list of laser pointer companies of every color listed above each page on LPF, I don't see why a greater than 10mW 532 for less than 50$ is so exciting for you.

To the OP- try to find such an easily found answer before you make a thread please. There are literally dozens of stickies and links all over this forum that would answer this for you.

“He who believes in Him is not condemned;

And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

Exactly and is why this is an unecessary thread. Please do some searching before you make an entire thread. It's no wonder the troll word has already been brought up.

That's what I was thinking too.
Little brother, potentially crippling hand held gift, sigh, I too think troll as Alaskan said, at least I hope this is a troll and not another uninformed mentally challenged individual doing the equivalent of sticking his finger in a blender to see what it might feel like. Worse yet he's buying his little brother a blender to stick his metaphoric fingers into, actually I would rather have a shortened finger than a blinded eye.

You do know that you have a natural lens in the front of your eye, don't you?

Did you know that most all of your detailed vision is generated from a tiny spot called the fovea where your center of vision is?

Have you ever held a magnifying glass on a sunny day and burned something on the ground?
You would not hold that magnifying glass to the sun and look into it would you?

If you shine that green laser onto the ground on a sunny day you can still see the dot, that's because it's energy density is higher than the sun per that area.

Well with a laser the focused energy density is very concentrated into a small spot, if it were to enter your eye at arms reach it could easily destroy your most detailed vision in an instant and medical science has not yet perfected stem cell therapy to the point where anyone can readily benefit from it, meaning your little brother could blind himself with your "gift".

It's not a joke, the amount of concentrated energy is much more dangerous to your retina that it looks shown onto the ground.
