A caulking gun is a handheld tool designed for the application of caulking, sealants, or adhesives. It typically consists of a metal or plastic frame with a trigger mechanism and a barrel that holds a tube of caulk. The user squeezes the trigger to extrude the caulk through a nozzle, allowing for precise and controlled application of the material to seal joints, gaps, or cracks in various surfaces such as walls, windows, or plumbing fixtures.
