I've got a framing nailer (compressed air) are all nails that fit framing nailers coated so they can be used outdoors or are there special ones?

Look for hot dipped galvanized for exterior work, they are close to double the cost of regular bright smooth nails.

tnx,
No, you will need to purchase Hot dipped Galvanized (as already stated). These will cost a bit more that the 'brights" (non-treated).

Don't confuse coated nails with those for outdoor use. Phosphate or glue coated nails are not for exterior use.

In treated lumber, you must make sure that you get hot dipped galvanized nails, not electro-galvanized.

"Hot dipped" galvenized or stainless steel. Stainless steel if you are a costal area. You can usually find the hot dipped variety locally for nailers, stainless steel via a Google search.
