Curiosity, why so particular about the laser being green?

Red lasers are worthless outdoors. Even under cloudy skies, they aren't visible during daylight hours.

Red is one of the least intense colors to the human eye. That is why you use red lights for reading or whatever if you want to maintain your night vision.

Green, on the other hand, is one of the most intense colors to the human eye. Which is why NVGs utilize it.

If it is light enough to render a laser useless, why not use back up iron sights or a scope?

Lasers have two uses;

1. Force escalation. You use it in a standoff scenario to create a psychologically aggressive statement.

2. Close quarters rapid acquisition. Your sights are set for a certain range. Lasers are used in an intermediate range in close proximity to your target so you don't have to worry about mentally adjusting for elevation.

Red is the first color to disappear in the atmosphere and under water . thats why alot of guys use red line when fishing . does any body know what the last color to disappear in the atmosphere is ?

Ridge_Runner_5,

Any class IIIa laser (of any color) seems to be useless for outdoor semi-bright conditions. FWIW, for my job I have to use a laser almost everyday in the operating room. I used to use a green laser, and the technicians always said that it was easier to see the red one under the flourescent lights.

I have a ruger mini14. It seems I can't find one.
I just want to check it out.

Thanks for your replies,
