I've noticed that when i have to do an soldering, i need 3 hands. If i had a soldering gun, then i only need 2 hands, which i have. Just heat and squirt. Couldn't be easier. Of cource you would need a retractable tip (to heat your soldering joints) that would retract when you pull the triger to release the solder. I think it could work.

Works like a caulking gun; just squeeze the trigger. [phoenix, Oct 04 2004]

       Excellent - now (relative) pacifists like me can play with guns with a clear conscience!

       You get a croissant, though you can't eat it til you've washed the flux off your hands.   

       In the meantime, any good ideas for a solder-sucker that doesn't smack your workpiece really hard due to recoil?

       For a good solder joint, the item to be soldered should be hotter than the solder itself. Laws of thermodynamics would seem to make it difficult to get such a result with a solder gun.

       Build it with double triggers. One controls a flame tip that heats up the joint. The other trigger helps ooze warm solder onto the joint. Good for pipe...not so good for boards.

       The retractable tip would heat the joint, the temperature could be independently for the tip and the solder.
