Default Power caulk gun

Today one of my neighbors was replacing some facia boards and applying caulk with the Black & Decker power caulk gun. The gun is powered by 4 AA batteries which last a very long time. The verdict? He is very happy with the purchase and highly recommends it. I am sure this would make life easier.

I have difficulty getting caulk expressed into a bead with uniform thickness and not bumpy from a tube with a manual caulk gun. For the usual caulk used in a bathroom that's not a big problem because it's pretty easy to reshape it with tools and wet fingers. But outdoor caulk (sometimes adhesive caulk) is much harder to rework so the initial shape of the bead is more important. Does this tool help generate a smooth bead with uniform thickness?
Thanks,
Terry

Terry, that was the first thing he mentioned... about how easy this gun makes laying a uniform bead of caulk. Here is a link to this item on Amazon: Amazon.com: Black & Decker CG100 2-Speed Powered Caulk Gun: Home Improvement

That would be worth it -- easily save $50 worth of frustration and disappointment. And the need to caulk seems to last forever.
Thanks,

I agree. I've used the pnuematic "sticks" which made it easy to walk along full upright and lay a bead on joists for decking...

Cheaper, 1/4 of the size, lighter and no tail following around- Looks like a winner.

Default B&D caulking gun...yes and no

I have one of these and they are great for light-bodied material like silicone or caulk but they have a hard time with firmer stuff like adhesives (PL 100). Good deal for the price as long as you know what you're getting.
