ridgid 18ga cordless update/review

about 6-8weeks i posted on here about cordless nailers. everyone said to go with the paslode but i hated the fuel cells. i bought a recon ridgid 18ga cordless nailer even though it doesnt get the greatest reviews. well im very happy with the gun! i finished my first box of 2" brad nails today and it has only jammed once. i'd definitely recommend this nailer. my only complaint is when on single shot its very slow to shoot the nail. you push trigger shoot and it fires up(motor starts to work) then shoots. you definitely have enough time to shoot in the exact spot you want haha!

My first cordless brad nailer about 10 years ago was a 12V Porter Cable.
It had an on board compressor that had to wind up each time the trigger
was pulled before it fired.
It is in PC heaven. No real picture
