    I have to get a new caulk gun.
    I was leaving the Job site. Been working on a flout house in a marina. In a hurry Thursday wanting to get home. I was carrying to much stuff at one time. As things always go when in a rush. It fell out of my box, bounced off the deck into the water. How it did it without hitting the railing is beyond me. So needless to say I have to get a new one. What’s everyone”s preference?

    Thats a sad story! you should have dove in for it lol. I also seem to use cheap ones and every time i do i hate myself as i feel like i spend a lot of time stopping drips and dealing with BS. I’m interested to hear some peoples reviews as i too need one of quality.

    I like the Tajima caulk guns – I have the Convoy X and the Convoy Super. Both work great, undoubtedly the best caulking guns I have owned.

    I saw the tajima caulk gun at marsh tools and it looked like it would work really well. Next time I am there I may have to pick one up.

    I would have to entertain those Tajima ones next go around. The thing is no one has them locally and when you need it you, need it. I just replace a decent one that lasted a couple of years with a composite one from HD. It feels like a cheap piece of crap but it works okay.

    The biggest hassle is preserving the sealant in a soft state so your not forcing the gun to push cured stuff through the tip.

    I always try to get the best gun at the store I am at. I have broken and tossed to many cheap one s over the years.

    I had to order the Tajima’s online, nobody local had them but I kept hearing good things about them so I ordered them and I am glad I did.

    I like the caulk guns with the option to prevent ozzing. As soon as you release the trigger the pressure stops so the caulk stops flowing when your done with the bead.

    Cox is a decent brand. We have their regular guns and a sausage gun. They are sold in a lot of places.

    We have a couple of these and they work well.

    The Tajima guns look real nice as well!

    The Cox guns look like another good one. Will have to see which might be sold locally.

    What’s the benefit of the super over the x? There’s a good bit of a price difference.
