Most Accurate Tire Guage?

Just wondering what some of you use to get the most correct tire pressure reading. I want to pick up a new one and I'm wondering if digital is the way to go.

I use a digital one. Not sure if it's actually more accurate or just FEELS more accurate, but it goes down to 0.5 psi resolution so I feel like I can match the pressures more closely.

Then the rational part of my brain kicks in and tells me that I'm just being anal and 1-2 psi makes no real-world difference. But whatever.

I've always used the standard issue pen sized ones. Simple and works every time.

That's what I got. Always felt kinda like a dinosaur...till Friday, when I was at the tire shop getting new 35's installed, and the tire guy whipped one out, checked the PSI on one of my tires, and rolled it over to the Jeep.
