I use Kester 256 also. Great stuff and stores well too. I put mine in a ziploc bag, roll it up and then seal it in a second ziploc bag. Store in the fridge. I have a syringe from mid-2003 that's still good and still works fine.
Digikey sells plunger handles for the syringes cheap and I imagine others like Technitool or Jensen Tools do also. I bought several sizes of Luer-Lock plastic dispansing tips that screw right onto the syringe when I bought my first tube of paste and will probably never run out. They came in boxes of 50, I think and I bought 18, 20 and 22 ga. tips. I generally use the smallest 22 ga. tips for most of my IC's and chip parts.
