Staple guns are awsome, much faster shooting than nail guns and 1/3 less re-loading time.

They also are the least often used fasteners and have been outlawed in some areas, so check your local codes before you use them.

Can't use staples for shingles or sheathing here.

Shingle staples usually have a 15/16" crown or 1" crown.Like others have said most areas and manufacturers don't allow them anymore.
