I came across this new Dewalt Nail-Gun and have to say that I think that it has some real fire power. It must, I mean, it even has a shoulder stock to prevent kick back from those nails that are to pesky to stay in the board.

Not a fan of Dewalt? well here is a identical one by Milwaukee!

A snob would say that they aren’t identical models.. The former looking like an M4 or a homebrew AR15-style carbine. This model is much easier to use in tight situations, like a small bathroom or underneath the sink. Its generally a two handed operation, but some serious contractors I knew can hold whatever they’re working on and use the tool at the same time.

The larger Milwaukee model is definitely set up for both long range and open area work. With the attached bipod (shown) you can open the windows between yours and your neighbors living rooms and line up the shot for exactly where he or she wants to hang a picture. This is the perfect tool for making sure you get the nail precisely where you want it.

I should mention that Ryobi carries a much smaller tool- the 226 model- that allows for one handed operation in a small form factor. This is perfect for nailing between studs, doing trim work, and hanging things on walls. The lady of the house should also feel comfortable using a tool like this as it is very controllable and light.

Finally, it should be noted that because of the rifled barrel, most of these tools will accept screws as well, although you should check with the manufacture before your purchase to make sure that it will work with that application.
