Try to build something easier than that zapper. You will learn a lot how lasers work.

Analogy with the computer : Building the whole computer from parts is much difficult than changing the videocard.

Try this first, a red diode LPC-826 with a LM317 driver.

Laser driver - It can be done

You'll probably need to get two different pairs, I don't know of any that block both 445nm and 650nm. Use the search bar to find good goggles.

They'll work for the most part however don't use them for 635nm lasers if/when you get one.

whats the difference between the zapper and the red laser people say that the zapper is much harder and i should do something easier first. i understand that u should have some practice before u do something more expensive but is there a real challenge difference between the too

Yeah, it's easy enough saying that you're going to make this zapper, but I'd recommend just starting with the build that Blord suggested. I mean to be honest, by starting small, you'll begin to learn, quite quickly, hiw lasers work, and this will give you the grounds to advance to more high powered builds.
