Just be patient, it takes a while to heat the wood through enough to soften the glue. Don't hold the gun to close to the wood. Some of them throw air that reaches 1000°, if you have a low heat setting (on mine that's 700°) use it. If it's a large joint you need to move over it somewhat evenly to insure it's all gets softened at the same time. You may not need to soften it fully to separate the parts without damage.
