    I've been using the gallo gun for about 2 years with no problems, sure beats hauling nitro into attics.

    We've had them on our trucks for a few years too. They work fine.

    The Gallo gun is cute, but wimpy.

    Get you some real drain cleaning power!
    Lots of other uses too.


    Get a liquid CO2 transfere bottle so you can refill the small bottle yourself from the same company, REHVAC, or cheeper from a welding supply.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    LOL...yeah, I have something similiar on my truck for the tough ones, but I haven't had to use it in a while. I usually try the Gallo gun first, especially if it is in a tight attic.

    Gallo Gun

    I use my Gallo gun several times a year. Small, lightweight, easy to use. It is sometimes diffucult to find cartridges. All and all a great piece of equipment.

    Put a couple of pennies in the bottom and use co2 cartriges, there cheaper.

    I like mine alot. I bought it before they went to the larger size (that only they make) so I can use std air gun co2 carts.

    Walmart sells a box of 25 cartridges for about 12 dollars.

    Yeah, I have both sizes of the body, so I can use either size cartridge. I have seen guys put a coin in the bottom of the larger body and use the cartridges from Wal-Mart too. A wad of duct tape works too...lol.
