I can't get the camera not to pick it up like that. It's just painted a semi-glossy black so it's just reflecting the flash a little. I think it looks good, though.

Re: My 445nm 1.2W laser

UPDATE: I learned a very important and expensive lesson while camping...

Never trust cheap belt holsters. My belt holster with my 445 fell somewhere in the Walmart of Big Rapids, Michigan and was unable to find it while retracing my steps. Even told customer service and 3 employees walking around there that I lost a "blue flashlight" in a holster that broke off my belt, but nothing in the last 3 days of camping.

So RIP 445, because I'm sure whoever snagged it when I dropped it has no clue how to use it properly. I still have my radiant shades though, lol. I'll keep you guys posted as to when I get a replacement. Will either be a 750mW+ 12x or another 445. Need money and haven't decided between the two.

Thanks for the kind words. Yes that worries me as well. I can only hope they shine it on their skin to see if it's hot and drop it so it smacks hard enough on the concrete to break it. But that's probably wishful thinking. Just pissed because I had just made a cool focus ring and everything for it, and I lose it my first day of camping :(

That sucks. It is worrying that someone is going to pick this up and have a >1 watt laser

Man that sucks :( I'm usually pretty paranoid about carrying my lasers around in my pocket because I have lost stuff like that before and even if it's not lost it could break. I usually feel my pocket every so often to be sure it's still there.

I guess I've been pretty lucky, once my DragonLasers Viper 95 slid out of my pocket at a restaurant here in downtown Ottawa. I didn't notice until I felt my pocket after I had walked to a nearby bus stop. FORTUNATELY it was still sitting under the table when I ran back to the restaurant.

Ouch. Sorry to hear you lost your 445. :cryyy:
But, seriously. I think you should show more respect for teh laZor and be less careless with a piece of potentially dangerous technology like that. Someone could use it to commit a felony, and you may be held (partially) accountable.
:tsk:
Some random w@lmart employee blinding themselves is the least of your worries. :(

You should have at least had a warning label on it.

Thanks, but I'm alright. I built my LOC that I have. I'm not that new, lol. Luke has me taken care of when I can get money together so that's all set.
