I just have a cheap one from Walmart, it was under $5. I donít think you need anything fancy, so Iíd just get something basic, whatever is fairly cheap with semi good reviews.

Is this for your sea glass project?

Since you've already had one and used it, you know that glue gun is a glue gun. As you can tell just by the pics, they are pretty much the same. Fancy/high priced or not, they all heat up and deliver melted glue.

Just go ahead, pick one and order it, and you're closer to starting your project.
Have fun!

which is probably about 15 years old that can be used for a while without being plugged back in. A friend made a special rest for it which is awesome so I don't have to worry about glue dripping on anything and it's easy to pick back up.
The rest is fairly simple so if you want a picture, PM me.

I also have a Black &Decker. It is nice and heavy duty. I think it was the best seller at the time. I love it!

Aw, fiddlesticks, wish you gave points for hints instead of links!

My hint would have been if finding a thingamabob to use as a rest (so as to keep the hot glue moving) is too much of a hassle, try a paper plate for the glue gun to rest on.

Points for vocab: fiddlesticks, thingamabob, hassle.

I went for a cheap one from Hobby Lobby.
