Default First Laser Advice

Hello,
I am very new to lasers and electronics of this type. I was told by some people to get a kit and build a laser I want. The thing is, I have no experience with soldering, and electronics with production in mind. I want to buy a pre-made laser. I as looking at the Arctic laser from wicked. Then I read the post about why not to buy from them, the laser batteries explode, and so on. So now I have no idea what to do. Ill tell you what I am after. I want 1 blue 1000mw laser like the Arctic for example. Then one 50mw-125mw Green laser for star pointing and for use while hunting and camping.

I would not mind learning about lasers and how they work and so on, the thing is I have no idea where to start. Browsing the forums is not helping either. Its like telling a kid who cant spell.read to get the dictionary...

I have no idea where to start, also do not know a good company from a bad one. Any help would be great and would be much appreciated.
I am sorry if this is in the wrong section.

Thank you for you time!

Default Re: First Laser Advice

Hi there,

I replied to your first post a few minutes ago and directed you to have a look at the buy/sell/trade section of the forum.

There are many 1-2W blue lasers on sale right now, and you'll be certainly pleased with them.

I respect your reading about why not to get anything from Wicked Lasers and further research.

Cheers!

Edit: Here are some lasers that you might look into:
