There's more than one type of laser. Diode lasers are pretty much ready to go immediately, but you don't want them to push too much power, as they can then heat up to the point of failure. Other lasers, particularly high powered chemical lasers, rely on a several complicated sub-systems to fire, and will need quite some time to get ready for action.
