I've met a few guys who swear by these.

What are your thoughts?

I'd stay away from it. It gets too hot and can warp your armour. And it's not strong enough to hold up in the long run either.

Pretty much what Mathias said. I remember when I was first starting out and a guy melted his HIPS face plate by using hot glue to stick his lenses in. I think I'll always remember that, that and the horror story of some anti-fog compounds eating hot glue so your lenses can fall out mid-troop.

Hot glue guns were used to attach the ROTJ lenses -don't bin it if you want screen accuracy - well for JEDI anyway!

These newbies giving dodgy advice! LOL
