not that im disagreeing with you RA_pierce but do you already wear glasses? also since i cant afford goggles i use mirrored Aviators, they do a good job of reflecting most of the green laser if i ever accidentally hit myself in the eyes.
Yes, but we're assuming this individual is intelligent enough to avoid directing the laser into his eye.
My opinion of the bottom line:
If it's too bright, don't look at it. If it can burn stuff, don't point it in your eye.
Knowing how to use a laser safely is the FIRST thing you need in this hobby. Goggles are secondary safety measures.
First rule of gun safety: Don't point a gun at anything you're not willing to destroy.
okay.............i do appreciate the props on the common sense lol. the fact that i havent run out and bought a dvd drive, ripped the diode out, and ruined a perfectly good maglite should point that out....i kinda need help on selecting a driver. the amc7135 is looking to be the most common... one post says to check GB. anyone wanna fill me in on what GB is?
