Buckbob,

The most readily available nail gun will be the "Hitachi" style. Hitachi, Senco, Porter Cable, and others all take the same nail. So I would recommend that nailer. If you are not doing a lot of framing the Porter Cable is a good choice. It is not designed for high production work, IE used day in and day out but for the DIYer and remodelers it is a good choice. I would stay away from a nailer that shoots clipped head nails. Studies have shown that in adverse conditions the material pulls away from the nail.

The 2 3/8" ring shank would be my nail of choice for sheathing and subfloor nailing.

"One Other Question After The Osb Board Goes Up Will Be Paneling What Do You Recomend In A Nailer Gauge And What Kind Of Nail."

I'm not sure what kind of paneling you are doing, so could you clarify the question a little more?

The same nailer won't be good for both jobs. I agree that 8d ring shank nails will be the ticket for the OSB.

Not clear on what you mean by paneling, but if it interior paneling then you need to use finish nails. Construction adhesive helps minimize the amount of nails needed. 8's would hold paneling but it would look like crud.
