Hey Guys and Ladies:
I bought this guy from Radio Shack between 10 and 15 years ago (maybe more?) and I think the price was around $79.99. At the time, it was one of the coolest gadgets I owned and It's been well taken care of. It is in near mint condition with original box and is being sold as a collector's item. The power is derived form 3 "N" cells. Trust me, this is NO burner of course :) but it always produced a nice red dot albeit very low output power (box states 65' range). It also has a cool "laser on" red LED to "warn" you that this bad dude is producing its death rays :D Still, a cool feature.
If anyone is interested in this museum piece, I'll consider all realistic offers. Thanks.

Wow, across a room, that's amazing!!! ;D ;D ;D

But, that is cool, if you sell it to the right people, you could get a fortune.
Try eBay, not sure if anyone here is gonna spend $100+ for a < 5mW laser. On ebay, however...

HA!!! Seems quaint doesn't it? But, when I first saw this in the display case, I HAD to have it. Trust me, there wasn't very much around back then in terms of portable lasers that anyone could afford. Today, you can buy lasers at the check out at ACE Hardware!

I was considering hacking it..but the cat's love it so much just the way it is!!!

I bought it to give my Fat Puddy some exercise...boy did it work well for that!!!!

Too cool...Now I need to go dig it out again for old times sake!!

It used "N" cells If I remember correctly...
