I'm new to this forum and have been lurking around for awhile trying to figure out just by scrolling the threads what would be the company/laser for me - I live in the UK, and what I'm looking for >> "I want a -decent quality- yet fairly cheap blue-violet laser that can burn!" .....so I figured the Thor M-II is the one perhaps, although I really love the lasers and designs at Sanwu like the Spiker series.
My intention of use is not just for fun or the beauty of the beam, more the effectiveness of the beam or zoom. We have a Lot of seaguls causing havoc here and it seems a strong laser may be a good way to disperse or even shoot the birds rather than the use of a rifle. Also I intend to keep it on me as a means of self defense instead of a gun and also as a survival tool able to light a fire when needed. It therefore needs to be a strong burning laser for outdoor use, preferably waterproof, with added use as a tactical pen like item (spiky ends) in the design.
Is the Thor only available on ebay? Unfortunately it doesn't seem to come up on our UK ebay.. I wonder if I can buy via the .com one..?
I will also order the Uvex safety goggles just for safety in case of wanting to do some indoor testing etc
Ps - is there any reccomendation on these? https://www.fasttech.com/category/1620/lasers wondered if the Thor may be among them but probably not
Thanks very much!
Howdy Rens, welcome to the forum. You might want to make a post in the Welcome section and introduce yourself. (Just a thought)
Anyways; waterproof or water resistance are different things as I'm sure you know. Sanwu's laser are water resistance with claims of being water proof but would not want to keep them submerged for long. But they are more expensive. Can't speak good or bad about a Thor havn't bought one, hopefully someone who has can say. Self defense, well there's a on going debate about the feasibility of using them as such. :thinking:
But welcome and enjoy and be safe. Glad you got safety glasses. You need them when you burn or start fires. Their great to take on camping trips or when your traveling they put on such a great show.
