choosing the right nail gun


well as of yesterday i now have

Paslode: 2 - 18 gauge pinners

rigid- framing gun, 23 gauge

bosch- 18 gauge , 23 gauge

hitachi - 16 gauge finish nailer

porter cable- 16 gauge finish nailer

guns ive sold off - 1 bosch 18 gauge pinner ( i had 2, sold one kept one).. porter cable 18 gauge pinner

im probably going to be adding a hitachi 15 gauge angled finish nailer to the collection soon also, i might upgrade my framing gun soon to a paslode or a hitachi.. and might look into getting a hitachi coil nailer for siding and underlay

The brad (18g) nailer sounds best for your use. For heavier trim work, I use a 15g nailer (I figured might as well get a little bigger than 16g, which kind of close to 18g anyway.) But if you're gluing, and especially if using on woods harder than pine, 16g will not only be overkill but will also start to split some wood.
