ADDING your location here is nice ...but this info NEEDS to be in your profile.
There are many dozens of LPF members in Ca.
hands on help is the best-
many have LPMs and forum members NEVER charge a fee to meter your lasers. AND if you want to attend a laser meet.....
... again- your location is the only way you will get invited.
Some put their first names in the profile- other interests-hobbies etc.
and its also important to let us know what you are studying if still in school or how you support your laser habit. BE HONEST please- all are welcome here the young and the old alike..
Any inaccurate info is not welcome and reason for a ban..
Protect your eyes and those of any around you.
Any public display of lasers is NOT technically 'legit' & intentional lasing ANY aircraft ANY time is now no longer just a felony its a federal offence.
Law enforcement is very likely going to assume any laser they see to be attached to a firearm- SO- pointing at them is not too different from aiming a weapon towards them..
Support LPF as often as you can.
SEARCH before asking questions. _PLEASE--
