If you want a laser that bad just get a lab laser. You can import them LEGALLY.

has anyone from Australia tried importing from Red & Green Laser Pointer | SKYlasers

Basically i'm looking for a portable 500mW+ (yes i'm after some grunt lol)

Or if no one has purchased from Skylasers, can someone recommend a company that sells 500mW+ portables who are fine with dissembling the laser and sending it in separate packages?

because some idiot shun one at a plane and the government over reacted
Well that sums it up... Multiple persons coordinated a simultaneous attack on a jet landing in Sydney IIRC. And many idiots followed suit. Not necessarily an over reaction, just a Gov dealing it out swiftly.

hey, i live in brisbane, australia. im thinking about getting a 5mW from ebay, being shipped from UK. Do you think it will get through. Also, do you get fined immediately if customs find the laser? Thanks.

is that a lifetime permit? So you can import as many lasers as you want?

Has anyone come across this Australian laser online shop > Untitled Document

They have pointers up to 500mW. How come everyone isn't buying from these guys? There in Australia so you don't need to worry about customs!

What does everyone else think?

I dont think they are selling illegally... The law states.. you can not import hand held lasers over 5mw with out a permit (only ones that use mains power)... and also that no hand held laser are to be used in a public place. This does not mean that you cannot sell hand held lasers within australia. If they have a permit to import the lasers then they are allowed to sell them within australia... plus there is no way they can stop the lasers already in australia pre-ban... it would be silly to think that the sale of lasers within australia are illegal.

just my 0.02 cents
