Jetlasers PL-E Pro or PL-E mini is an excellent choice, high quality product with many features, + best customer service in the business---you can't go wrong with Jetlasers---they are very proud of the products they make. love their work, and treat their customers like gold. They are not just about "money". An exceptional Chinese company, really.Yes. Totally agree about glasses. Actually I’m thinking about buying the PL-E Pro 3 watt from Jet Lasers. And I will get the goggles that come with it (around $30). From all the good things I’ve read about Jet Lasers and considering the price, I would think those are good goggles. Thoughts? Also I like that this laser has a keyed switch.
I’m an older dad and have little ones. So this will be a strictly OUTDOOR ONLY laser. 3 watts is just too risky inside for me. Also it will be kept in the gun safe. I really like the analogy of a loaded gun....with children, and even teenagers around, such a laser should be locked up. Children are subject to inexperience and teenagers are typically subject to mischief and sometimes outright idiocy IMHO.
Thor is just another "me too" low cost laser.
