Bang for the buck laser

Sorry, I am sure this has been covered, but I can't seem to find the particular thread.

I want to get the most powerful and brightest laser I can for the money. I know pretty much nothing about lasers, other than I want a green one (right?). I went to a gun show and got to play with one quickly. The one I played with cost $250, however the seller may have been playing on my ignorance.

What should I get for about $200? If spending $40 or $50 bucks more will get me a better laser for the money, than I am willing. Mobile/hand held is preferable. I'm down to buy a used one too on the forum if there is a good deal.

I'm not an idiot and realize the danger and consequences of using a laser in the wrong way. It would only be used in a rural area and never mishandled.
