Pneumatic nailer. I started a 650 square foot home addition in 1988, and got nerve injury driving 16- and 20-d nails into the girders (using a two-pound hammer, I don’t have a lot of patience), joists and blocking all in one weekend. I borrowed it from my B-I-L, who was a contractor. He offered, but I wanted to be independent. After a weekend of nailing, I caved in and borrowed it. It made the framing a TON easier. I gave it back in good shape. Now, I use a brad nailer for small stuff. There are some other good suggestions here.
