building a shed

I am building a shed, I am going to buy a framing nailer, which is better?
3" X .131 galvanized or a 3 1/4" .131 galvanized for the framing.

Doesn't sound like you are going to be using it much professionally so I would suggest getting a siding/framing nailer. Hitachi makes one that will shoot 3" nails for framing and it can also be used for siding nails. It will make your investment a little more diversified. 3" nails will be fine for framing a shed and most other DIY projects.
