A flashlamp pumped liquid nitrogen cooled Ho:YLF laser was constructed and operated both normal mode and Q-switched. In normal mode operation, the laser produced over 300 mj at 2.9 percent slope efficiency but it operated on several lines. Lasing was restricted to one line and Q-switched operation was achieved up to 150 mj.
