Tongue and Groove Pine paneling

I am remodeling my gameroom with tongue and groove pine wood boards and 1/4 log paneling to give it a log cabin look. My question is, can I use my regular air nailer for this or do I need an "Angle nailer" or "Tongue and Groove" nailer?

Tongue and Groove Pine paneling

Going to need a better understanding of what your trying to nail up the T & G you can use a pneumatic narrow crown staple gun with 1-1/4 staples. And just predrill and face nail the ones on the ends if you have to with finish nails.
Not sure what the 1/4 log paneling looks like or how thick it is. I've seen 1/4 logs but not in the form of paneling.
Which direction are you installing this? If it's horizontal make sure you hit the studs.
If it's vertical then you need some form or strapping running horizontal or first cover the wall with plywood.
I always prefinish the wood before installing it so as it expands and contracts you do not see the gaps showing at the joints.
