    I'm really interested in getting a temp gun, but I want to know what brand seems to be the best to get? I guess both price wise vs. how good it is. I see some 25 dollar temp guns as well as some well over 100!

    I'm okay with saving up money for it, but if there is a 50 dollar one that does as good as a 100 dollar one I'd love to save a little money, lol!

    Anyone who has temp guns, what do you use/suggest? :)

    This is the one I bought, and it works great! I don't know if they make this brand in the US though. I bought it when it was on sale for 75% off. When comparing it to my digital thermometer it was very accurate!

    I have this one

    I bought the PE-1 (the PE-2 has a laser site, while the PE-1 does not)
    I love mine, and haven't had any issues with it at all. It seems to be very reliable and accurate..You can find it for a bit less than the listed $30 price, (I'm thinking I paid about $25 total when I got mine a while back...but I honestly can't remember which site I purchased it from..I just know I did order it online, and it WASN'T ordered from the website linked above.)

    I've seen this one recommended in a few different places
    PE1 TG1 Infrared Thermometer Temp Gun by Pro Exotics, it goes for about $30

    There is also a PE2 version that has a laser sight on it, that goes for about $45. I don't know if the laser sight is worth the extra $15.

    The prices I quoted were on Amazon by the way.

    Edit: Teach, you beat me to the punch, but seeing as you have experience with it, thanks for the recommendation. :)

    Yup I have the Pro Exotics PE-2. I just LOVE it. It has a "lazer" ( you have to say it like Dr. Evil) lmao
    I believe it was Merlin that recommended it to me. I ordered it from their website. :)
    I can't remember what I paid for it but it wasn't that bad.
    Happy shopping!

    That's a good piece of information to consider when deciding which one.
    Thanks Merlin. :)

    Sweet! I think I'll get the PE2 then when I get the chance! Especially with the growing number of herps, would be nice to check and double check to see if my thermometers are doing good on each one!
