I broke down and bought a Scotch ATG gun and I LOVE IT! I'm sure all scrap addicts and paper crafters know what I am talking about...but if you don't, it is the mother of all adhesive dispensers. The gun itself is a little pricey at around $40, depending on where you buy but you will save a ton of $ with the refills. The refills are around $3 for 36 yards. That is compared to the $4 for 8 yards you spend with any other adhesive refill.
I highly recommend you check out http://www.framingsupplies.com/ if you are interested in buying one. They have the best prices I have found and the shipping is really fast!
