Infrared Thermometers: which one do you use?

These are sometimes known as IR Guns. There are a lot of these out there, ranging in price from $25 to $2500+. I would like to know which one you are using and how do you like it.

Links to where you bought it would be helpful too.

If you are on the harbor freight mailing list they had a coupon last month to get one for $5. http://www.harborfreightusa.com/usa/...o?itemid=93983 regular price is under $20.
It looks a lot like the one sold under the DuraTrax label at Tower Hobby...

I have an HPI one that i got from tower hobby for $20. I like it, temp is accurate enough to set my covering iron to.

I got my first at Radioshack, pocket-sized, works really well and I now use it in the kitchen. I bought a Ray Temp 8 used here, also works great, and has a laser for pinpointing what you are trying to measure. Works better in tight areas, like inside a sailplane fuselage.
