Unsure of best way to mount studs.
I wanted to thank everyone for giving me the helpful advice on my last post, and so promptly too!! So here is another totally newbie question. So I've been looking around for the best way to put my studs in and I've gotten a bunch of mixed. I figure the best way would be to measure and cut my top and sole plates. Vise them together and mark the studs, then place them on their respectful chalk lines and hit em with two or three nails. Measure and cut all my studs, remove top plate. Pop nails in the according studs through the top plate, rplace the top plate and scrunch and wiggle studs into respective areas on sole plate and toe nail in? Right or something like that at least? Also, I'm doing like a 12 foot wall and a 3 ft toe wall. Can I get away with pre drilling holes a little smaller than my 10d's or should I go rent a paslode or something? Thanks in advance, and I'm already loving this site!!
