you can buy one on amazon.com I bought a rongpeng for 150 and have laid a few thousand square feet with it. It jambed one time, but other than that, I think its good for the money. Or buy a Bostitch. They are the ideal nailer, but they are about 400 or so.

i bought a freeman flooring nailer. it does staples and both types of cleats, 15 or 16 guage. and it has a 7 year guarantee. online it was 179.00 and 4 months later i saw one at a local tile store for 149.00. ive did 3 rooms and worked great. but it was still cheaper then renting one.
