A few years ago I had purchased this little simple staple gun for small easy projects (I think I got it for replacing the fabric on my hope chest)
Isn't she shiny?!
I have come across a big problem. I have little hands. Leeeettle leettle leettle hands. I am having the most difficult time centering the... ummm... nozzle gun barrel type thing ... onto my target and holding it tight... and squeezing the handle because the handle is too wide and I can't get my hand all the way around it. My hand is more comfortable closer to the fulcrum (those of you who are familiar with staple guns must be rolling at me and my ignorance of staple gunning, I know!) This, of course, is not only making it difficult to get a good shot off in the first place because you're Supposed to squeeze closer to the end of the handle (something to do with physics or whatnot. I was not good with math and science in school, obviously) but also, my efforts at trying ever so hard to squeeze the handle at the wrong place (but it's so comfy!!!) is making me also lose my mark and causing misfires. Also, (and I assume this is more because I probably got the wrong size staples for the job) the staples are standing out a good quarter inch if not further from it's intended target.
If I try to hammer them in, they either bend in the middle into a lovely, yet useless, M shape or they fold over like a sad deflated goal post. Also useless but only slightly lesser so.
And this... is today's kvetch. Any (constructive) suggestions? Yaknow.. .besides 'give it up you silly twit' or 'yeah, get a different stapler and staples that are the right size DUH' :)
