I kept seeing people talking about this atg gun, I was a little intimidated by the size of it, so I put off buying one. But then someone else on the message boards had mentioned something about having small hands and had no problem at all with the atg gun. I ordered it as soon as I read that. There is a small learning curve on how to load the tape into the gun, but it only took a few minutes. It is so easy to use! This is probably my best investment in scrapbooking! The refills are not very expensive and you get 36 yards of adhesive. So, if you are reading this and you have the opportunity to invest in the atg gun I say do it you will not regret it!!
