Nail Gun ?'s


I am in the market for a nailgun to use in building a fence. Although I have used them in the past, I never owned one or know what type I need. Im thinking some sort of a fraiming nail gun..... The fence will be cedar pickets on pressure treated 2x4's.

Do you have a compressor?
Are you going to need other type nail guns in the future?

I would use ACQ approved ring shanked 2" nails for this one.

Yes I got a 30 gallon compressor and as far as future projects, I am sure it will be used again!

There's a lot of brand named nail guns out there but for your limited use I think you would be safe to just go with a cheapo from someplace like Northern tool and save your self some money.
May want to also check on CPO tools and check out the factory rebuilt nail guns. Same warrenty as new and most often there almost 1/2 of on price.

I've bought several tools from them that were reconditioned and they looked brand new.

You can pick up one fairly cheap at Harbor Freight.
