hot glue gun to hot air soldering iron ? Answered

hello everybody, I have a burning question that has been bothering me for quite some time the question is: I have a hot (really hot) glue gun and I was wondering if I could put a copper ect. pipe through the glue stick opening and hook it up to my air compressor in an effort to make a hot air soldering iron is this possible?

If you can't melt solder on the tip of the gun, then it probably won't work.

I just went to Home Depot and bought 40W glue gun for $25

The result is: Not hot enough.
