    He wouldn't take the bait. :-(

    I was on I-26 heading north from Hendersonville (exit 49) and saw some activity around mile marker 47 or 46 on Waze.

    I passed him as he was sitting diagonally in the median aiming at the southbound traffic. I turned around at exit 44 and got in the #1 lane.

    I was going the speed limit and he didn't even try to get my speed. :-(
    (My V1 would have alerted if he'd aimed in my general direction ;) )

    I had the TMG in receive mode and everything.
    I was running out to TN so I only made one pass. He was holding that gun real still out the car window though and I got a good look!

    It looked like it was a light blue Pro Laser 3 or maybe a Stalker. Perhaps someone can match that up with what they are supposed to have since I'm new at identifying them?

    Probably a PL3.

    I like to let them hit a few seconds so they don’t think their little laser guns are perfect. ;)

    I'm leaning towards a PL3 as well. It didn't have anything on top like the stalkers I'm googling.

    This particular spot is where I've seen them twice now with lidar. Once back in March-April and today. I don't drive that road everyday, but it is a road I frequent.

    I've only seen them use the PL3 around here. The first of the year, I was getting hit a lot. I haven't been hit in months.
