I want to buy a laser pointer that can light matches and pop balloons and stuff, but most sites sell them for a ridiculous amount of money. ($850 for a 200mw laser at Dragon Lasers? No thanks... >.>) Anyway, here's the site:

Other than DX (which doesn't ship to the US

) this is the best deal. I'm just a little concerned because they can't spell properly... (I like red lasers because there's no risk of IR and they can travel farther.)

Wait, DX doesn't ship to the US?

DX does ship to the US; they don't ship lasers that are above 5 (or 10)mw. Actually, I am not sure what the limit is, but they certainly won't ship a 200mw laser to US as it is against the law or something.

..No one, huh? Anyway, I just recently signed up for PayPal, and I have some questions for it:

Ok, say I buy something off of PayPal, Do I just give them my email, they send the money required, I log into my PayPal account and verify it? Or do I have to send my money on PayPal, and they'll ship t then? (This applies to any website.) Also, what if I verify it, give them my money, but they never ship the product? How do I report that? What if that happens here in the GBAtemp trading forum?

Does FDA have a mandatory limit on the power emitted by laser pointers?

Yes. Laser products promoted for pointing and demonstration purposes are limited to hazard Class IIIa by FDA regulation.

21 CFR 1040.11(b) and 1040.11Â, limit surveying, leveling, and alignment, and demonstration laser products to Class IIIa. This means that pointers are limited to 5 milliwatts output power in the visible wavelength range from 400 to 710 nanometers. There are also limits for any invisible wavelengths and for short pulses. Pointers may not exceed the accessible emission limits of CDRH Class IIIa or IEC1 Class 3R.

...Anyone? Or should I just request it in the trade forums and have them ship it to me? (It would probably take like 2 months that way...)

I've been looking at it for awhile... I've thinking about getting the 95mw Green Viper Laser from dragonlasers.com along with the safety glasses. All in all, it would probably be around $235 shipped... So what do you guys think? I would obviously be paying this with my own money.

Just so you can pop balloons like a dumbass? lol, seems like a waste of money to me.
