Default Grease Gun

What kind of grease guns are you guys using and how do you like them? I am sick and tired of these little mini POS that they sell at the autoparts stores. I swear they are only good for a handful of uses and then they crap out. I just installed new pitman arm, idler arm, and idler arm bracket on my truck today and when it came time to grease everything and test drive my POS gun would not pump. I usually can hold my finger over the tip and pump it a few times and it will prime, but not today. I pumped that stupid thing 100 times and nothing. I even put in a brand new tube of grease, which it didn't need b/c there was plenty in there. Is this just me or what?

I agree i have the same issues with the POS that i got a the autoparts store, reminds me of a lighter i once got at a 99 cent store. Only worked a few times then crapped out.

I think my gun is haunted. I got mad at it and through it in the garbage. The garbage man came today so when I was taking the cans to the road I dug it back out and put it on the workbench. I went out today and pumped it once and it started working again. I greased everything I could find in fear it would quit again. So my trucks and trailer are all greased up.
