Senco and Pasload pop into my mind first as I have always had good luck with both products in all they made. Bostitch, Porter Cable, and Duo-fast are three more. The cost shouldn't be in the $300 range for one now days where in days gone by all guns were $300 and up.

Check home depot for the porter cable. I thought I just saw it in todays ad for $65 or $69.00. I have had one since they came out. Works well for pinning along with glue.

A pin nail is basically a needle as it has no head and is about the size of a needle where the brad nail has a head and is thicker. I like the pin nail as it will hold the smallest trim or piece of wood in place for the glue to dry and will not split the smallest wood pieces. I used it a lot in putting crown molding around something with a lot of steps because I could glue and pin all my pieces together on the ground and put it up all at once.
