Default Which is the best glue gun

Hi ladies, I am going to get a glue gun tonight and have seen so many things in the forum. Can you tell me which is the best glue gun to get? I understand I need a hi temp gun and use hi-temp glue sticks but other than that...I am lost. Which seems like I'm lost a whole lot lately...

Me and my current glue gun have a love/hate relationship and my old favorite blew up! Here is what I am looking for when I go to purchase my next one:
-Accepts fabric glue (E6000)
-Extra long cord
-Has a Stand
-Interchangeable tips... sometimes I need a really thin line/dot of glue

GL!

I always look for a skinny tip and make sure to get a high temp. Or a multi temp. I also like the mini glue guns

I use only multi temp glue sticks....I have a friend that uses high temp and her ribbon pulls right off the clips....mine....I have to tear the darn clip up to get it off...and I use the cordless glue gun from walmart Thermogrip C600 the best thing in the world...lol and it is cheap compared to some.

Cheapy Michael's glue gun, love it! I got an Aleen's glue gun, but cannot change the tip. Called the company and they said it was defective. Maybe I will like it with a different tip.

I am on my second glue gun, which I use a LOT!! Both times I bought the one at HL for $2.47 (?) and I love it. It doesn't do anything special, just what its supposed to do!! I have seen the one with the skinny tip and will probably buy it when I need to replace theis one, but really if you're looking to keep prices down, go for the cheap one!

Aleene's Ultimate! No other way to go. about 15.00 with a coupon at Michael's so not bad. I in fear of the day mine stops working and they no longer make them so I just bought a spare. Crazy, maybe, but can't take the chance of being without it.

I love my el cheapo also, but it does have a skinny tip which is great.
