I found this blog post about the history of laser and ray guns in science fiction writing and film (and how well - or not, they compare to the real thing), all the way from H.G. Wells to the present. There's also a cool vid of a US Navy laser (not sure if this has been posted elsewhere as I haven't been around here for a long while) torching the outboard motors on a small boat.

NICE!! Thanks for sharing :D

I thoroughly enjoyed reading through that. I happen to be in the works towards completing a pulse-laser gun, so that was more than appropriate :beer:

The ray guns with the 445's in them are pretty cool I'll have to try that some time.
Didn't Jay do that here a year ago ?

I believe you are correct, Jay did a star trek ray gun AFAIK but I'm not sure about any others. The 445s are sick to fire also... In my case, it's the 'rapid pulse' effect with a laser gun I'm going for.... haven't seen that one done just yet :beer:
