used a bungee cord and cut it to fit,

and rapped it up with electric tape,

it's a 3 year old gun, and still runs great, bad habbit, allways setting it on the ground,

I also have a gun hanger for it, no time to hang it up, do it later,

the card board wraps around the plastic housing/ nose of the gun, not even a burn on it,

the sheald has also been around a long time,

sometimes I maybe mobile and the gun is hot,

the card board will lock down on the nose of the gun,

and will clear the hot tip by 1/2" and no prob's for past 3 years now. tuttle

PS and toss it in my duffle bag no burns. :thumb

I just dont care enough about my heat gun to protect it...but, I still use the Milwakee junk. It seems when I get a good, semi expensive heat gun, it lasts less than a year. I don't think Im hard on em, but maybe I am. Id like to get some Makitas...they get VERY hot and blow a lot of air. If I get one, I'll burn my Milwakees with it. :evilgrin
