    I should be asking yahoo answers, but whatever. Anyone have recommendations for a laser pointer that DOESN'T suck? I'm only going to use it on my cat...

    I think just about any laser pointer will work. Just get a cheap one.

    $5 laser pointer from any store anywhere. It doesn't have to be good, just anything will do.

    99% of every laser pointer I use work just fine. The 1% just have dead batteries.

    I'd love a laser pointer that runs on batteries that I could easily find and replace, not those friggen watch/hearing aid batteries. I would gladly buy a laser pointer that runs on AA's.

    How is this my fault? ಠ_ರೃ And I like lasers, they work and are very distracting.

    i got one for about $50 off ebay it's a proper one not with the crappy plastic shell but a real metal one. man you can get up to some trouble with this (i almost did) i can stand on my balcony and shine a dot on the roof of a church maybe a mile or 2 away!

    a bunch of us were outside and i stood on my driveway and shone the laser right to the end of the street and it's a bloody long street. about 10 mins later some guys came down asking if they seen any1 with a green laser...we all said no and ...i never done that again :lol:

    this 1 is so powerful on a dark night if i shine it up at the sky you can see the outline of it!

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    Here's my attempt to save this thread from being moved to the EoF.

    You want a laser that DOESN'T suck? This is my laser.

    You might ask, "Why, Densetsu!?"

    Because PEWPEWPEW, that's why.

    Be careful what you wish for. I heard the Catboy liked being played with.

    For years I'd wanted to get an high-power handheld laser, though I've never got around to buying one.
