Why? The reason I'm asking is often time when someone ask something like that there up to something there not suppost to be doing.
Hmm that took all of 30 sec. to find.

Not much shear strength in a 0.12 -- (7d) nail that is 3" long, perhaps 0.148? Or 0.161? Let us know if you find that diameter/length from Grip-rite; http://www.grip-rite.com/flash/book/bin/index.html#/16

And, welcome to the forums!

If any ads are present in my answer above, I do not condone/support/use the product or services listed, they are there against my permission.

The shear strength of a 10d is a lot more than the wood that it's shoved into.

If you have ever banged a stud out that was end nailed, you would have seen that the nails bend...not shear off. The wood is giving which allows the nail to bend and pull out.
