    Default Neat ebay item

    I'm not a big fan of pointers at all, but this is pretty damn cool! Nobody bid on this item please since I'm the current high bidder! Built by a native PL'ian

    Hey !!! I got up and check fleabay to find that the listing was removed because it was considered hazardous materials ! BS! BS! I don't think it was a problem until someone decided they did'nt know what it was. Maybe the CPF guys would be interested.....I had 40 some watching it and several bids... what a joke. Might just keep it and trade for something later on.

    That doesnt happen unless someone rats on you. I do remember reading something that caught my attention as wording that was questionable for eBay. Usually the less you admit the better. If you dont say its dangerous ebay cant prove its dangerous therefor your auction stays up.

    What a load... Oh well, I'm sure I would have eventually been outbid, but it was fun anyway. What amazes me, is that they yank a .025W pointer, yet you can go and buy a 40W yag, no problems.... That reminds me of the first time I've ever been to New Jersey, I pull up to a gas station, jump out to fill it up when I start getting yelled at by an attendant. It seems I can drive a 2000 pound vehicle 75 miles per hour down a highway yet I'm in some way unfit to fill up my own gas tank...

    It's back. I changed some of the realistic things...like lithiums being a fire hazzard when shorted or charged incorrectly. If they pull it again it may become a raffle item.
