I would buy a guy without a safety and I have one a .38 special. The reason is because I keep it unloaded unless it will be used. The level of caution must be very high.Yeah but you wouldn't buy a gun without a safety or one without a trigger that automatically fired every time you put bullets in it would you?
It's basically the same thing, all the FDA cares about is that the laser has all the correct safety features, which really isn't too big of a deal. Just as guns are allowed to be sold an manufactured as long as they have the correct safety features.
As far as I know, class 3B laser pointers need:
Emission delay of 3 seconds or more
That really doesn't seem like too much to ask for. And, if you work with them you can usually skate by on one or two of those. Look at the pointers sold by Viasho (also known as "RPLs"). They only have the key-switch, emission indicator and aperture shutter and they were still granted an accession number.
Steve, thanks for visiting and for the helpful info.Here is one of the reasons why the increased tension is happening
OK, I said I am gonna go away. I am.
if it is that important to you...start a pollPersonally I would be fine seeing Diode_Virgin get a ban. I really dont care if you invented lasers, in my opinion you are a bad influence in the forums.
you are wise beyond your avitar. if you have a day to kill, go back to the thread where the phone call happened and i told him right there, there is NO way around it, and look how far it progressed...WHY, because he chose to ignore and do the website, call it a kit, and do everything in his power to avoid the issue or skirt the issue, and that is EXACTLY the reason he is in the pile he is in today...WHY??? because he thought he could be the guy to find the loophole. Frothy told him and I told him. Others were chiming in wit BAD ADVICE, phone call, it was fake and blah blah blah. What ev, I can lurk an get all the information I need and snicker when I see the house of cards fall, because there is no foundation.To quote Mr. King (was it Martin Luther Jr. or Rodney?): Can't we all just get along?
People say some dumb things (myself first and foremost among that group), but that doesn't necessitate the conversational equivalent of ripping their arm off and beating them with the bloody end. (and that's not an attack on you D_V, so don't rip out my eyeballs and wee on my brain)
People are just getting bent way out of shape over things that would best be ignored or politely reprimanded.
The worst part is that a lot of this animosity is coming from the most honorable of intentions: wanting to educate and help people. When we see someone spout off ill-advised suggestions to someone we like, we get defensive -- it's only natural. But we also have to realize that Moh is not so dense that he would blindly follow the advice of some schmoe he doesn't know from Adam; likewise, the other people on this forum should have enough common sense to tell who knows what they're talking about and who's just spouting off poorly-drawn opinions -- and if they don't, then no amount of in-fighting is going to help them (they'll eventually follow the advice of someone who tells them to put their head in a microwave to get themselves a tan and be out of everyone's hair).
So, to those of you who have actually spent time on trying to sagely advise and educate: thank you.
We can all learn a lot from this thread -- unfortunately we also have to sift through a lot of bullshit to get to it.
Dont you have fries to get out of the grease or something?^Yeah, but the difference between you and Frothy is that Frothy will be missed. He always would take the time to patiently lay things out for people, so whether or not they listened and took his knowledge to heart was up to them. He wrote pages of detailed information all for the sake of the forum, and for the sake of all of our safety. Frothy NEVER resorted to outright belittling (except possibly in his final post, out of frustration). You on the other hand.. don't let that bus door hit you..
Are you really serious???? do you even read this forum??? I called ONE GUY and idiot and another guy a TROLL. Do I need to spend countless hours copy pasta every personnel insult that I have read from others...NO i will not waste my time doing that.I support you getting banned not because you post unpopular content or opinions but that you resort to personal attacks.
