Send him a private message.
Actually email him. The forum should give you the option too

get it ordered up, and get to reading. On laser safety.
Here on the forums you can find tons of knowledge, I don't mean to nag you about it, but it's something to do while you wait and might keep you out of trouble.
Guy in Dallas was sentenced 15 for shining his laser at a heli purposefully just the other day, They got his ass:na:
Oh, trust me, I've done quite a bit of reading before signing up on this forum (and am still doing plenty more reading). I'm still a newbie (actually totally inexperienced when it comes to assembling electronics), and am looking at getting my first "real" laser, which is something of a dream since I was much younger. My only laser was a 5mw from about 15 years ago. Now I'm looking at a model Sci fi Lasers has that's a 1.5--1.8W. I figured that instead of starting small and buying one after another, I'd just "go for it". :yh:

Yeah, you don't wanna do what I did. I started out getting a 5mw green, followed by a 45mw green(which was actually like $250 back then), followed by a 300mw green. I basically ended up selling the 45mw green at a big loss because the 300mw green outclassed it in every way and made it kinda pointless to own. The 5mw green(Laserglow lyra) is a nice presentation pointer though and it's eyesafe for general fooling around indoors. I usually only use the higher powered lasers outside for long range pointing and to look at the beam heading into the sky. They can burn stuff pretty well too, but I kinda got bored with burning things after a while.

Is a blue one good for pointing at the sky too? I never hear anyone talk much about doing that with blue ones. The blue ones seem to be all about burning stuff. I can imagine that getting to be old after awhile when one realizes that there are lower-tech and cheaper ways to burn stuff. :yh: But sending a bright lightsaber beam into the sky is something only a laser can do (unless you have a very good and tight-beamed flashlight).

a 445 putting >1 watt definitely produces a bright beam at night. Mine looks sort of like a purple lightsaber without the beam termination. This isn't my picture, but it's a pretty accurate representation. 445 isn't really a pure blue either. It's more of a bluish purple.
