Hi, I was hoping you guys could help. Well I'm reupholstering a chair, so I went out and bought a light duty arrow staple gun. But there's one problem: it didn't come with directions, and I don't know how to put the staples in! I'm guessing they go in here ((ignore my face)

Just Al: I know that God is real. I feel his presence in my heart
Me: What does it feel like?
Just Al: It's hard to describe Jason. It feels good.
Me: Oh. I thought maybe it was like heartburn or something.

You could go back to the store where you bought it and ask them to show you.  Most stores are pretty helpful on this sort of thing.

Ok, you're on the right track.... you have taken the right bit out (the spring), that is where the staples go. Flip the gun upside down so you can see the hole left after taking the spring out. You just slip the staples straight into the hole (make sure the sharp ends are facing away from the handle side), they will fit nicely. Then put the spring back in and make sure it is in properly so it doesn't fall out. You will feel tension as you put the spring back in because it is pushing on the staples...this is what keeps the staples in place so they come out of the gun.

Be sure not to load too many staples into the gun or the spring may not fit back in...this is just trial and error. Also, when buying more staples, make sure you know what kind of gun you have, there are many different sized staples, just like a desk stapler.

If this doesn't make sense or you still can't work it just ask for help at your hardware store, don't be embarressed, everyone needs instructions now and then, even those big beefy guys
