    I got my Ingersoll-Rand Thunder Gun today in the mail...Man, this thing is SWEET...I can't wait to get it home and hook it up to some air...I just got sick of busting my knuckles on rusty nuts and bolts..This think will shoot 'em off and save me tons of time...For an Ultra Duty 1/2" impact, this thing is pretty light as well...Now I just gotta build my collection of impact sockets and extensions /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Its IR #232TGSL...It's a "Limited Edition" gun...It sounded pretty iimpressive just by its specs:
    -625 ft-lbs of torque in reverse
    -10,000 rpm free-speed
    -1250 bpm in reverse, 1100 in forward

    And it looks even cooler /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Here is a link to it on IR's site...

    See Ya...

    I paid $170 for it shipped off of E-Bay... But you can get it <a target="_blank" href=http://www.thetoolwarehouse.net/shop/product4166.html>HERE</a> for pretty cheap as well...
