I just did a job yesterday where I used 2 in brads. In theory, I could have used my finishing nailer but that would have been over kill. Besides, I would rather leave the smaller head of a brad visible instead of the larger head of a finishing nail.

I have an 23 gauge pinning gun, an 18 gauge brad nailer and a 16 gauge finishing nailer. I only use the finishing nailer when I am working as a carpenter (not a woodworker). If I could only have one, it would be the brad nailer.
