    Any one try the Craftsman ES gun?

    I decided I need an ES gun finally. Has anyone ever tried one of these guns? Kind of skeptical, but hoping, as I'm really low on funds at this point. Not interested in what other guns work, just if THIS one does.
    Thanks for any help

    Are you already PCing Lead Boolits ? Is this for a particular Boolit ? I'm sorry, I'm thinking PC "Guns" in general are a waste of money. After I found the shake n bake method, the one I bought (not Craftsman) just sits there collecting dust in the garage. It wastes too much powder (yes, there are ways to recover some. not all) and it bites back if your not careful. Don't let me stop you, if you want that one I honestly hope it does what you want it to do very well. (I grew up with and really like Craftsman tools) I just think you would be better off with a plastic bowl and a bag of powder. But if you get one, it wouldnt hurt to give us a review of your thoughts about it.

    If you are PC bullets I would suggest you stick with tumble coating. If you are planning on PC larger objects that need to be sprayed I understand this gun will work, but how well and for how long?
