Sounds like something I would do.

i bought some nails for my gun and then used them a day before I realized I bought full head nails and needed the clipped version.

Since then I buy whichever is less expensive and they both work...

I'm shooting full offset head Senco nails---so far so good----we were rebuilding one wall so badly framed that it is a head scratcher as to why the house is not sagging----

I wanted that fixed before the inspectors saw it------Moe ,Larry and Curly would have been proud.

I've never seen such 'creative' framing on a 6 year old house-----I'll be glad when this job is finished.

I got into a jam one night and ended up buying a harbor Freight model for 69. Still working.......

Funny how tat happens sometimes, when yu buy something to get you through it turns out to be not breakable.

I seldom get a bargain---I replace tools as they die---and I need it NOW!

The switch went out on my big mixing drill---nearest store was Harbor freight---
I knew their drills wouldn't hold up to mixing mud----but they had a mud mixer on sale---

Dog gone---that's turned out to be a nice tool!

Sometimes old Harbor Freight is a pleasant surprise----I needed a Multi- Tool for one job---
So I bought a cheap-o-------I just love that tool-----it comes out of the truck almost every day---
