Travis, When Terri Lynne and I were building 140’ ft. of boat dock down in Texas.We sure could
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.
