    >Class 3 Laser Ownership?

    My question is, is there an actual law on the books that prevents civilians owning IR lasers Class 3 and up?

    Or is it just an off-the-books regulation adhered to by the companies that produce them voluntarily?

    Example... I cannot purchase a PEQ 15 from TVNC because I am not LEO/MIL and do not have an Agency PO.

    The Disclaimer at the bottom reads:
    "IR Lasers are restricted to Law Enforcement and Government sales only and cannot be sold to civilians. Purchase of IR Laser equipment can only occur at the Department, Agency, or Unit level. IR Lasers cannot be sold to individual Law Enforcement, Military, Government, or Contractor personnel. No exceptions. If you are a government employee and would like to purchase an IR laser, you must have your agency place the order for you. We do not make the rules, but we do follow them. These lasers are regulated by the FDA (Food & Drug Administration). Price inquires must include an email request from an official government or government contractor email address. All ITAR restrictions apply."

    So I am asking, is there an actual, enforceable law on the books, or are they legal to have but just regulated to keep civi's from purchasing them, thus... if you do happen to get your hands on one you're more than fine to have it.

    To me it just seems like a way to keep the price up.. being selective and keeping it from the masses raises value... while also limiting the bumble****s who do stupid shit with them like shoot them at planes at night...
