    We have an upcoming project where there will be several hundred holes to fill with silicone for stud mounting.

    we already have several of the "cheap" guns, looking for a better option.
    Ideally
    * swivel handle
    * easy release tension lever
    * guard "housing" to keep the tube from flexing / rupturing when under pressure

    I'm wondering if anyone uses the power caulking guns, they seem to get decent reviews.

    GAC05GAC05 thanks for the suggestion and I like that it can be used for multiple container types.

    While as a general run of thumb we avoid installations in "questionable" area, the notion of a "caulky defense" is a plus to consider
    I should also get back to the bar and practice on my "dart-throwing" skills, those full tubes would come in handy as a "ranged" defense

    You do live in Texas right? I think by law you're required to carry at least two guns at all times.

    Those caulking guns are kind of large to stuff down your pants for concealed carry.
