    The Green Laser

    I went to the range to qualify some people for the AR. CHL and met a member of the gun club there.

    He had one of the new green lasers mounted on a Beretta Storm Carbine in .45 caliber. I had read up on the green lasers but until today had never messed with one.

    I gotta say that thing was awesome. We all know that the red lasers are pretty poor performers in direct sunlight, but the green laser has no such problem. In fact, at 100 and 200 yards it was bright enough to be detected by the eye, and this was in bright sunlight.

    It is so bright that it is very easy to see. In the dark,or shadowed areas, its even better.

    I can see that this green laser may actually be of use being mounted on a gun. I've got a few lasers, but to tell you the truth I was not a big fan of them, preferring to just use the sights but this thing has me rethinking it. I may have to break down and get one.

    Anyone ever try one ?

    Just curious, is the beam itself visible? On some green lasers (I don't have any experience with weapon mounted ones though), the beam itself is visible.

    Nope, you dont see the beam,just the spot where it hits.

    Hey Sixto,even monkeys in fancy clothes can be cute.

    Beleive it or not, he got it from ebay for 60 bucks.
    I'm sure at that price it was a cheapo chinesejaptalianwopiotta brand, but it looked great and worked even better.

    In an LEO entry team situation, it would be wonderful to know which dot is yours. I've seen a dozen red dots swarming all over a room. How do you know?

    Green lasers are the future. I talked to R&D at Lasermax a little while ago and thet are coming out with a green version. Apparently studies show that the eye picks up green faster than red. Kind of sounded like 9 out of 10 shooters say...

    You can buy one for a couple thousand dollars, just be REAL careful where you aim it or your shooting/reading days will be over!

    I've seen those green lasers, and I think that there IS some value to the daytime visibility point...
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    How about awesome? I've been seeing alot more of these on the market now. Never had much use for a laser sight in the daytime though.
