Think I'll get one too, but need to buy some other stuff so I can get the free shipping. There's a book already in my shopping cart and need about $10 more. Shouldn't be hard.

First 7 reviews said it was inaccurate and cheaply made. Didn't read any further.

You will be surprised at the things you start using it for besides the obvious. Such as barbeques and such. As a side note I really do not listen to Amazon reviews. When you get it from amazon which is the easiest return in the world. Get a glass of water put your meat thermometer in it measure the temp. then shoot it with the gun you will know real quick if it's off or not.....Hope Santa's good to you.....

After reading the reviews on a bunch of different models that had a pretty good price range I finally ordered one. The good reviews outweighted the bad.

I ordered the 8750 model

My HVAC tech uses one when checking the output temperatures of my houses ceiling mounted vents.

B47 you are right now a days the day of measuring with a regular thermometer is almost over. Few other things you can use it for is to shoot your trailer walls, ceilings inside and see how much heat they are putting off. I have one for about 3 years now. But if I remember right I paid like double that. When I first joined the forum people said to feel the hubs, besides being a PITA that way i bought one instead. Measured at every stop. Then got the TST system, but still do my same routine......

Yep - I still have a small thermometer that has about a 5 inch stem and a round dial at one end,but never use it now.

"But still do my same routine" - it's hard for us old goats to break our old outdated routines and habits,isn't it?
