From personal experience and a multitude of media reports, most of these guys hit their target by accident anyway. They "point and shoot" without ANY range time. Unless I am already VERY up close and personal with the problem, I would not hesitate to run (while weaving and hesitating). The odds are much higher that he will just stand there and "blaze away" without any sight control or run away as well. Unless he came there specifically to shoot you, he doesn't want the attention that a gunshot will draw.Switch said:Too bad the light doesn't stop the bullets, I mean, the guy can get blinded but he can still hit you accidentally
Hard to shoot if you're blind man.Hemlock Mike said:Never bring a laser to a gunfight I last qualified with a 99.2% for CCW permit.
Are you suggesting a laser with photon energy above 500KeV?laserwanabe said:Aren't military lasers actually gamma lasers, not a high unheard of IR?
I used to work very closely with a 40kW Varian xray system. We used to breed up the xray tubes, which is a stepped ramp from 0v to 150KeV at 260mA (max). During a breed I accidentally passed my hand under the beryllium window (very close to the emission point) and I didn’t feel anything then and to this day (years later) I haven’t felt anything.Switch said:I'm sure a "military grade" 100kW gamma laser would f&%k you up instantly.But anyway, the ones I've read about are IR, not unheard of high though.
