Powder actuated guns?
I will be purchasing a powder actuated gun and I am asking for some info on them. I want a trigger gun for $100 or less. I have looked at the Remington 490, which seems to be the most readily available. Is the 490 a good gun or should I go with another model or brand? I will be sinking about 200 fasteners into 2x4's to concrete. I want a gun that will hold up under fire.

Ramset is my choice...I think Pasloads are a little pricey....however, with drive set fasteners getting better, the Ramset is not coming out of the box as often....probably will be on e-bay someday since i am thinking we haven't used it in a year or more. Contruction tools and equipment change so quickly with new technology abd better materials, I am amazed those os us that are in this field for a living can keep up.
