Default Greetings from a new laser enthusiast!

Hello! I'm Tyler, 22, working at a hardware store full time.
Over the years I have always been interested in lasers and laser pointers of all kinds. Never did I have a 'real' higher powered laser pointer other than the cheapo ones you can buy anywhere.
On and off I had always been looking at pointers and thought the idea of having one would be fun. With some disposable income at hand I decided to start small, and just purchased a 30mW handheld green pointer from Optotronics. I had only read good things about this company and the infamous 'Jack' seemed like a great person to do business with.
Since this is my first somewhat serious laser I just wanted something fairly low power that I could have fun with without entirely worrying about burning my retinas out. I feel like it's a good middle ground to begin with and if I decide I really like and enjoy it, I'll get something more later down the road.
Hope to frequent here often and gain a lot of knowledge from the laser community!
Thanks

Welcome to LPF Tyler!
My first "real" laser was also an Optotronics, still works great.

Enjoy your stay here. Have fun, and stay safe!

Done and done, thanks! I only put -real- in quotes because I wouldn't really consider a 5$ red laser to be much of anything.
