If you're looking for another green laser,
you can't go wrong with an SF501B. But if
it must be another high end green pen,
probably the LP from laserbtb.com would be
a good choice.
I probably wont get another laser until the summer when I move to MN since we have lots of land there in the middle of no where. Where I live currently, 7 miles from a busy airport, the first night I had the laser, shining it in the sky for 20 seconds with no planes in site, had a helicopter with a spot light circling my neighborhood lmao.

Holy crap, seriously? Probably a good idea to wait then. :eek:

That is always a possibility if you are within 10 miles of any airport as it is a federal crime in the US.

Wait, is it a crime to just use them near an airport? We all know it's against the law to point them at aircraft, but within 10 mi. of just the airport? Never heard of that one, so thanks for telling me. :D

Yes that is correct, within 10 miles of any airport don't even shine it outside. You also don't need to shine it directly at an aircraft, just in the flight path of an aircraft is illegal. Pilots are also told to report it if they see a laser even if it's not pointed at them. This has been discussed here several times in several different threads. If you live in a place where aircraft frequently fly directly overhead then you probably shouldn't be pointing it in the sky.
