I had a Viridian that was very high quality and held a O perfectly fine. The green lasers are much more visible during the day but eat batteries much faster.

I can see it all the way from the FootLocker down the the food court. As long as no fat civvies get in the way!

It was on my SR9 so the farthest I ever used it was 25 yards and never had a problem seeing it. At night it was very impressive to shine into the sky. It would literally look like this and I am not exaggerating.

The green laser ive seen goes a long way. It even has a warning on it that says it isnt eye safe for at least a mile or the metric equivelent.

They are not eye safe i can a test to that i damaged my left eye with one several years ago by flashing myself while trying to adjust it direction it only took but a a fraction of a second for me to forever have a blind spot in my left eye, at night i struggle to read street signs, in fact any reading from a small distance is difficult. BeSafe.

I don't really want to find out, but the warning is there. And it has 3 safeties on it, so I'm guessing the warning is real

they typically use AN-PEQ (or similar)

They are not sold directly to civilians, but they do end up on the market from time to time. Not a cheap unit to begin with, but given the scarcity of them in civilian hands they can fetch up to a couple thousand dollars.

I have a green lasermax, if you shine it on something in bright sun light it is difficult to see past 10yds, if it is on a shaded/shadowy object I can see it for 100yds of yards. I also have a red laserlyte, doesn't even compare to the lasermax.
