This is a real bargain. The large gun that I have is sometimes a little unwieldy, but I really like how long these cartridges last. They make smaller ones that probably are easier to handle, but I'm sticking with the one I have for now.
I really like this adhesive gun. I find it is really useful when using texured papers. I also like it when working with larger pieces like 5x7 or 8x10 pictures. I've never had a problem with the adhesive coming up.
