The exact same as Event Horizon, or maybe a 20W CO2 or something if it came with the right safety equipment :cool:

If you're going to go CO2 then you might as well go with the high end. 200W at least.

If just one portable, my RPL-400. Hercs are awesome, but not as practical as an RPL.

For any laser, a really powerful argon, in the multi watt ranges :) Or any multi watt visible spectrum laser for that matter :) 60W 532nm :cool:

That's exactly where I saw that :)

I saw that as a reference to some of the most powerful visible spectrum lasers around :cool: Thread starter said be realistic :)

I'd go for a Hercules-400. But that's not very realistic to be honest, the chance that I'm going to pay 3k for a portable laser is equally large as winning the lottery jackpot.

I would probably take the 60 watt 532nm too, I would imagine the beam would be decently bright at night. I could also use it to pop extra balloons I have sitting around.

I'd love to have a 60+ watt CW Nd:YAG - I've seen a couple for sale here and there but at this point they are beyond my price range and/or to heavy to ship w/o paying a huge amount.

I would go for a 10 WATT 556nm the size of the RPL ;D With a beam diameter of 0.5mm and a <1mrad This could be realistic but some time in the future... I would also need something like 10 OD goggles :eek: And the casing made of Titanium! With an infinite duty cycle (like the SPYDER II) And some sort of super batteries that use nuclear fission and last >10 years!

Actually you'd only need OD4 goggles to reduce a direct hit to 1mW.

Wish they made 555nm DPSS..... D:
