Bill, your timing couldn't be better.
I am getting ready to caulk my decks. I'm always looking for an excuse to get a new tool! Looks like it comes without a battery.

You can get it with battery, charger, and case. But, I have several One+ tools. So, I have batteries and chargers.

Bill, After watching some videos, I think I will get one. The feature that appeals to me the most is when you take your finger off the trigger, the caulk stops coming out. Also you can control the flow with a dial. Also they say less waste of the caulk.

I've done deck seems on 2 boats now. The bottom of the Bartender is laminated 3/8" + 1/4" ply. I have used some of the big caulk tubes. God, my hands have hurt.

Thanks for the tip Bill!
I bought one of the caulk guns at lunch. A Battery, charger, and the gun was $105 total after my military discount.
If my wife complains, I am going to say "it's all Bill's fault" :lol:
By the way if anyone was in the military, both Home Depot and Lowes give a 10% military discount on anything they sell.

Like Oliver North... I accept all blame!
