The whole family is now accepting of my very niche hobby and amazed by them.
I got a 5mw (later metered at closer to 30mw) DX laser or two, then told my parents I was going to get something bigger. My father didn't care, my mother worried until I convinced her about safety, etc.

Maybe it wasn't the wisest jump, but I survived 5mw -> 1.2W without loosing my eyesight, and I've had a lot of fun with it.
