It's probably just a cheap knock-off of Apple's iDeathRay .

Maybe I can not fry you.

But conditions permitting. I can sure as heck hit a man sized target from a half mile away with my AI AE. And I am not even Chinese. I shoot thousand yard gongs on a pretty regular basis.

The lasers cannot kill a target with a single shot,
Call back when you have a weapon.

Now if some enterprising American would come up with a BBQ sauce mortar we could have instant BBQ!!

Bubba, hold my beer while I zap that hog with my new Harbor Freight ZKM-500 laser rifle!

When you see the hair on that hog burning drop the BBQ sauce mortar in the tube!

Sauce in the hole!

Wake me up when they invent the DL-44 blaster. Either that or an Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator.

Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

We used a laser to check the accuracy on the Cnc machines I built.

A mirror could redirect the laser?

I was on a layover in Cologne, Germany a couple years ago and one of the first officers had a laser from China. It was the size of a large cigar. How he got it through Security is a mystery. And the fact that he would risk his job over it was suspect too. At any rate, that laser could fry paint off of the wall of hotels on the other side of the Rhine river. A distance of 1-1.5 miles.

The new tactical laser weapon will ship with the cheapest batteries possible. Which after initial testing, will either leak or start smoking & just catch on fire.
Thus ruining the new yaser yifle just before really needing it.

Good thing they had a 20% off coupon!

Don't forget the smoke coming out the back that drifted downwards. The reason was because the camera was inverted so that the viewer wouldn't notice the wires the model ship was hanging from.

Stick a BluRay laser assembly in that and you can have fun ruining a kids birthday party by popping all the ballons.

I think this is why I liked Star Wars as a kid and not Star Trek. In the Star Wars universe everyone has cool weapons like blaster pistols and lightsabers. In Star Trek everyone walked around with funny-looking phaser thingies.

But the storm troopers have that pointless armor. It stops nothing.

Lasers: in Jr. High, circa 1978 my favorite teacher--Earth Science-- had an expensive laser he brought in from Japan in the cockpit of a plane (he was a part time pilot)

It was about the dimensions of a DuraFlame Log. Looked like a long electric pencil sharpener.

With the lights off he made a glowing dot dance about on the rooms blackout curtains.

That was a BIG deal at the time. Now you can get a six dollar laser as a cat toy.

I wonder how many dissidents it took, to perfect it at that range?
