Squeezing Instead of Troweling Mortar


Is there such a thing as mortar (not caulk or adhesive or sealant) that can be applied to existing bricks using a caulking gun as opposed to a pointing tool?

I like the disposable grout bags the best, they're completely see-thru & flow the best, and they're extremely cheap when bought in quantity. You may be able to find them at a masonry supply store though.
