Aubuchon Hardware Tip: When purchasing a staple gun, chances are you won't be thinking of rust (after all, it's brand new), but a rust resistant finish is a very good extra to have. Remember that you'll be using the staple gun in any kind of weather, with sweaty hands, humidity, and other factors that will make that rust-resistance very appealing down the line. Don't buy a staple gun without it unless you plan on using it infrequently, and in cold weather only! It's also a good idea to avoid a staple gun without a window so you can visually inspect how many staples are left in the gun.
