Default Oval regular size hot glue sticks

Hi crafty friends....I have a problem I have 2 glue guns that I love but they take the regular size oval hot glue sticks which I can't find. Ebay had some but for $50 plus $10.84 shipping "Yowzer"! Not doing that. I'm ok with buying a new glue gun but I'm being picky. I own an Aleenes Ultimate Hi Low one whiich is ok but I think the low is still pretty hot. And the gun is large for my tiny hands. I have a mini but I hate it. I go through way too many glue sticks too fast since they are minis even when I buy those extra long ones. I just hate it. I love the size of the Crafty Magic one and the Glitter Box one but both of those use the regular size OVAL hot glue sticks. Any Suggestions???Here's 2 pictures of the guns to show you the size differences. The white is the Crafty Magic and the yellow is the Glitter Box both of those are the same size and I love the size and they are low melt ONLY. I also love that. The gold one is Aleenes Hi/Low temp regular size gluestick and the mini is Surebond. Do not like the Surebond wayyyy to tiny. Both the sticks and the gun. Again Any suggestions would help. Thanks in Advance.

It looks like the two glue guns that you like best are low-temp glue guns. In fact, they look exactly the same but with different manufacturer brands. I did a quick search for low-temp glue sticks and found that most of them were round, just like the regular high-temp.

I did find a slightly cheaper oval on eBay:
They are 4" sticks and, with shipping, come out to $1 each. They might be good in the meantime, but I think you'd be better off buying another glue gun -- one that is the right size and takes round sticks.
