I'm doing some testing with films to try to develop a good laser absorbing film that can be applied to reflective surfaces. I've confirmed that films work in absorbing laser but no tests yet in real world conditions as I don't have a real laser gun to do more realistic testing.
What is the best way to get a hold of a gun? Should I keep an eye out for one on eBay and then just sell it again when I am done testing? If so, what gun would you recommend? Are they available to rent for a weekend, etc? The film samples I tested were small. I'm now waiting for a larger sample to arrive that I intend to put on the headlights, tail lamps, and over the rear plate. I don't want to do that until I have a base reading on the car without any passive countermeasures applied to gauge the effectiveness of the film(s).
