What's a good tire gauge that's accurate?

http://intercomp-racing.com/ has really accurate guages. 

The easy thing is to always check your pressures with your track side tire guy with a comparison to your guage.  I do that with Tom Mason with an amount of regularity on my nice guage.  Allow's one to have the correct ruler.

The other thing that is important is to use the SAME pressure gauge.  Don't switch up with your buddy or just grab something.  Use your own.  If it's off, at least you'll be consistent.

When I get a new gauge I check pressures with 3 dif guages to check for accuracy. This was after discovering that one the guages we were using was off by several pounds. I thought something didnt feel right when I was on the track and when I came in I did back to back pressure checks only to find out we were using a faulty guage. It is not uncommon for a pressure gauge to fall off after a while.

I use the accu gauges. They are cheap, and you can tune them if you have time and patience.

Mine is within .5lbs of my really fancy reset to zero everytime you cut it on digital.

I don't think I have a tire guage that's correct.

this would be an excellent "how-to" post.

I have a Radio Shack gauge that talks to me.  It's accurate against my other gauges and cost less than $10 on the clearance table.  Also, it was highly rated in some mag that did a comparison.

Now if I could just get it to talk dirty to me....
