  Laser light - bear deterant?
  Posted by: old_user on Jul-16-08 9:50 AM (EST)

Have any tests ever been done to see how effective the laser is as a deterant to a black bear as it walks through your camp, or mountain lion stalking you? Not the Captain Kirk kind of laser, but as a light nothing wants to look into. Could this be another use for the laser, for those of us who don't really like carrying a 357 magnum into the wilderness?

Good question, maybe the manufacturer knows as they are survival instructors as well. I would think that a direct hit, and suredly repeated ones would buy you some time....
