It’s a good deal for hoseless work, watch the $$$ for a bigger job though, those gas cartridges add up.

I know the gas cartidges can add up, but its cheaper than buy another compressor to run a framing nailer.

When I was building my workshop I use a 2 gallon Ridgid air compressor to operate my framing nailer. Worked just fine unless you are nailing like a racehorse.

You got a great deal as long as it works. I bought one of them as soon as they came out many years ago (mine is orange). If this is completely new to you, a little advise: DO follow the maintenance/cleaning procedure for the combustion chamber as that is the heart of these guns. Also, when your battery conks out, you CAN trust the imported ones. A couple of years ago, I got two for less than $30 from an Ebay Top-rated seller with thousands of transactions and 99.9% rating… instead of $40 + each for the Paslode brand. The two work just fine and hold a charge much longer than my old one.

I take the battery out of the gun when not in use. There is no issue with leaving the fuel cell in he gun since it is relaxed (not connected fully) when the trigger is not being depressed. Keep an eye on the hinge pin on the “door” to the fuel cartridge. If it ever hangs out on either side, then when you close it you will have loads of fun getting it back open.

Good luck.
