View Full Version : Gun tacker question

Hey guys, what type/brand of staple gun tacker can you guys recommend for tacking those cardboard targets during practice? I went to the hardware store today to look for a tacker, and I got confused by the different brands and sizes that were available.

Also, what size staple wire should I be using? Will the shorter or smaller size wires be effective in keeping the target boards from falling off the wooden frames?

the staples come in a black box with yellow and light blue markings. arrow yata brand. it's available at National Bookstore. I can't remember the staple number and the brandname of the staple gun itself. Kunin mo yung heavy duty na.

my tacker is Rapid brand. Made in Sweden.

Okay, thanks for the tip, Doc :)

The hardware store I went to was selling the Arrow brand tacker, but they didn't have any staple wires to go with it so I hesitated to buy it. Tingin na lang ako sa QC next week.

I use the Bostitch brand of tacker, made in USA(left over from my father's political campaigning days). Hamilton staples( My tacker uses No.51) are good and cheap, they come in green boxes of 5,000 staples. I buy them from hardwares in Chinatown.

arrow. i THINK the size is T50(???). i used to get the med staple wires but it wasnt enough to hold the boards - maybe due to the kind of wood also. get the long ones, kahit may stuck na old staples pa sa wood, kayang kaya ng long wires. experience ko ito with armscor, sa dami ng old wires stuck sa wood, the board hardly touches the wood, pero with long wires yakang yaka.
