Default Any of you use a beergun for bottling?

I want to use one, but wonder if it's worth the $$. My biggest concern is how long the beer in those bottle last? I meant would it last as long as normal priming bottle?
Thanks.

Why wouldn't it last just as long? CO2 is CO2. The solution in the bottle doesn't care if it came from natural priming or force carbonation.

That's right, but somehow I think with beergun, some air got inside plus less CO2 in the bottle. Dont you think?

The trigger on the beergun is connected to CO2. You purge the air out of the bottle with the CO2 before you fill the bottle. It ends up being just like normal beer in a bottle. No contamination. I use mine quit a bit and no problems. Its just a lot faster i think.
