Well LaserGlow is so expensive for the following reasons:Thanks! Strangely enough, I actually have a Wicked Lasers Core that is not only operational, but--you'll never believe it--is really bright! I know, shocking, right?! I only ask because I was curious about where to get a fine pointer if ever I need one again, WITHOUT the five-week shipping...! But, DANG, $240 for a violet 5mW?! When you can get an 80mW one of probably the same quality for $30 on BTB?! You weren't kidding, Greenlander! I don't doubt the build quality of their greens and reds, though.
