    If it's anything like the length of US laser documentation, you'd be spending almost as much just to print it out :P Are you planning on starting a business or are ya just doing a one-time venue somewhere?

    We are not regulated anything like the states.
    HSG95 is a guidance and not law, but as with most government guidance notes if something goes wrong you can be penalised for not acting responsible.

    Lucky... though you do have to pay for import taxes Still, a very small price to pay considering the huge hassle of doing laser shows in the states.

    Hey Andy, when ya get it set up, take some pics when the venue is hoppin'!

    Don't audience scan, before you have taken time to read up and understand the dangers associated(there are some very good articles in the Pangolin resource section). A laser that 'is only 100mw' can still do damage to a bystanders eyes if used incorrectly.

    Audience scanning is a norm over here.
    With the cheap chinese lasers available I have seen quite a few of the 'town centre' pubs using them.
