I thought using these solutions but I am still looking for a simpler
one : simple things usually work better...
The other reason is that I intend using a laser LED on the gun in some
situations. Then I will have 2 laser spots : one from the gun (the gun
will emit a brief pulse) and one from the target : pretty confusing...
I did some tests with a high output white LED and a lens and it gives
a bright enough spot to make it workable. I hope it will still be
bright enough when pulsed.
