of used one of these babies on my nail framer to protect us from the water moccasins.But will this model
work on a hitachi gun or do you have a special model for it? Great idea too funny!!!!!!

Great idea, now do have one with a range finder attachment for those nails we have to reach way out there
to hit? Will have to file this for future reference. Thank you for sharing.
