Hello, LtMazz here from the states, just joined been lurkin around for a few weeks. So finally decided to sign up and say hey! I never owned a real lasers before but i wanna get one soon.
Thank god for this forum too, There was so much i didnt know safety wise its crazy. Im looking to spend $200 or less for my first laser and Safety goggles. A strong beam and burning some stuff is what im looking for green probaby. So something 100-150mw is what thinking. For the goggles i want ones with good protection. Seems best to get diff pairs for diff color lasers? I love my eyes and alot of the stories here about "accidents" are rather scary. so a good pair is important. Any suggestions or advice would be awesome.
Anyway nice to meet everyone and yall seem real awesome =)

So any recommendations of whos good to deal with would be sweet. Ive been reading alot even the B/S/T forums so im gunna go look there some more and see what i find.

WELCOME--Enjoy the forums--you just missed a chance to get a RED, GREEN, and BLU-RAY for 150$ plus shipping. see them here: http://laserpointerforums.com/f39/3...-150mw-red-280mw-green-stable-50mw-48246.html .

Keep checking the BST forum or make a post there for Want to buy. The best deals always come from LPF members. You might even find a member living close to you as well.

WARNING!! Lasers are habit forming and can cause empty bank accounts.

On a more serious note-- protect your eyes. HZ

Welcome to the forum.
Keep looking on the B/S/T section.
Deals come up there at least once a week.
As stated above, if you are into burning, you need a 405nm Even powered as low as 30mW ,they will burn.
12X@600mw is much better, of course. You can literally set your house on fire with one of these bad boys
.(Right, Dave? LOL)
It will cost you a little more then $200, but, unbelievable power
