I just love my ATG gun. I am left handed and have no trouble using this item. There is a small learning curve to these items. However once you try them, you will end up with more than one like I did. (Yes even with the cost of the item, it is worth the price. ) I love the way you can remove extra tape by just rubbing it when you put the pages together. There are different tapes with different sticking strength. Great for paper to paper, and chipboard to paper. I now have 2 of them the 714 for the small detailed items and the 700 for 1/2 inch tape for the larger itemsl.
