NO, unless you want to rebuild the nail gun...you will crash the driver.

Spence, Welcome to the DIY Chatroom.
Questions are more easily answered if you share more of your profile info, at the least your location. Thanks

Right. Because the answer to his question would be completely different if he lived in New Hampshire vs Nebraska.

depends on teh model of gun, check the porter cable site and look up your nailer, the specs will be listed

as for region. it depends on your local codes. certain areas that are hurricane and tornado regions require special nails for extra holding power which are diffrerent than a round head. other regions will let clipped head go
