Grease guns

Now then, I know there has been grease going n threads on here before but…….. quite often when I pick up a grease gun here it’s empty, so my question is how come they seem to be empty on the last nipple for other people but me? And does this strange phenomenon only occur here

the trick used to be to have 2 grease guns on the go.... usually a lever gun and a pistol grip. Problem I now have is that when I've nearly finished and the first runs out then the second is usually empty too.

I too had a bad grease gun day yesterday.
When I was at school man was on the moon so why hasn’t anyone invented a see through plastic tube for the cartridge and the grease gun tube ? There is no high pressure in there surely? At least we could see it was about to run out.
We've got a speedy grease gun and you can see how much is left as the cartridge is exposed. Best grease gun we have had

You can actually buy see through barrels for grease guns! Useless if your using a cartridge though.
 
One way I have found for getting.rid if an annoying grease gun is to leave it on the mudguard of the tractor while putting the pickup wheels on the baler,bale the field of straw, remember the grease gun which has now disappeared and spend all winter waiting to find it in a round bale. Then watch as the bale chopper finds it and throws it straight through the cladding of a shed at 150million mph.🤔🙄😡😊

Can normally tell close enough by how heavy they are!! But then I only use the one gun and no-one else works here
