The advent of compact high peak power short pulse lasers has made tabletop recombination x-ray lasers pumped by these systems a real possibility. In this paper we discuss some of the relevant issues for these lasers and highlight a number of issues that require consideration. Results of simulations designed to estimate potential gains in the quasisteady-state region are also described.
