Was building a pergola in the back 40 for a Koi Pond.
Mostly salvaged deck lumber.
Was shooting 3” framing nails into the top when the gun slipped just a little.
I could tell by the lack of recoil that something went wrong.
As soon as I moved the gun and saw the ding in the side of the wood I knew what happened…the gun moved enough to shoot the nail past the wood, at about an 80 degree up angle.
I counted to about 4, and heard the nail hit in the street on the other side of the block.
Since it was a hit the street sound…not a nail off a windshield, hood, trunk, or skull sound…back to shootin’.
I figured total air time was about 7 seconds…that’s a long way up, and down.
