This is the one I use. Reptile basics carries others that don't cost as much.

I got this one years ago from Home Depot. I normally stay away (far away!) from Ryobi equipment but this one has lasted for a long time and has remained accurate.

Check Harborfreight Ryan. They have about 3 to choose from ranging in price from $10 to $30. Grab a 20% off coupon and go pick it up. If you don't have a Sunday paper you can get a 20% off coupon online.

Ebay has some temp guns for under $20 shipped. They are from China,but most are built there anyhow.

I've been interested in the one from harbor freight. It's 8:1 and normally $59 but they always have coupons for $29 and I think pretty cheap on eBay. I'm not sure how good they are though.

I'd go with the pro exotics temp guns as well. As long as you are working with just your reptiles, the temp guns made by them are more than enough. They are sleek and pretty accurate. I have yet to have any issues with mine (PE-1) and don't think I could have spent a better $30 when it comes to something like this

We got a commercial electric from home depot a month or two ago. Seems to be working well for us and it cost us around 40 dollars.
