Okay, I'm sold on 'em. I've noticed lately, though, that my grease guns don't seem to last very long. When I put in a new tube, they work okay. But when it gets down to half, they won't pump any pressure to get the grease moving. Am I just buying low-quality guns?

I think you grease guns are getting air locked.
Just loosen the theaded end pick it is almost off
and pump till you get grease. Then tighten it up.
Also, I have taken the tube and fitting off and pumped a few times. Seems to work to.
If that does not work, I would throw the grease gun on the scrap pile.

pull the spring loaded handle at the tube end and rotate when it is under pressure. This usual works for me.

If you store a grease gun, where it will get wet with the weather, the cartridges, which are made of paper, which can swell up, and deform, causing a jam, and the loss of half a tube of grease.
