Sales are so brisk, there apparently is a 6 month backorder on several models. Should you rush out and order one today? Well, it may not be a bad idea, given that it could take up to 6 months to get one shipped to you. In this day and age, you never know whether Japanese nuclear officials, or eve U.S. agencies and officials are telling us the whole truth about the extent of the radiation, not just from Japan, but radiation from our own nuclear power plants here in the United States.

If you live in close proximity to a nuclear reactor here in the U.S. it may make sense to have one on hand to see for yourself whether any radiation is escaping from your local nuclear plant.

You can buy a Geiger counter for a pretty reasonable price these days, and there are actually geiger counters for sale on Amazon.com right now, and they say that they are in stock.  You can never be too careful.
