This is what I have and love it! I also got a great deal on the SCS site. The down side is that I have to order the refills on line because it isn't available otherwise. I know that Hobby Lobby has one and sells refills, so that is one thing you might want to check out, too.

Yes, ordering the refills online is the best price. The LLS has refills but I find them quite expensive.

I do want to add that I recently got an ATG gun and like it a lot for layering cardfronts and larger things. But it seems really awkward to use for smaller things, like Nestie shapes. I still use other types of adhesives or double stick tape for that.

It is one of my mainstays of stamping. I use it all the time and couldn't live without it...I highly recommend it above all other tapes. I even use it for small jobs, it's wonderful!!!

My husband got me an ATG for Valentine's day and I was thrilled. It came with both 1/2 inch and 1/4 inch (it came with an adapter). I'm currently using 1/4 inch and it is wonderful. I was playing with it - using one of those heavy postcard advertisements from the mail and folded it over, taped it and it held!

The Tape Depot on ebay has the best prices I've seen and you don't need the adapters as his core is one size.

I like and use my red ATG, but since it is rather large and awkward, I use Scor-Tape for small jobs. It's easier to get into small spaces with tape exactly where I want it.

ATG is great for signs and larger items where you are working with straight lines to get right to the side edges. Just go over the start a few times to get it from end to end evenly.
