The CDC today reported that the number of consumers seeking emergency treatment at hospitals for nail gun injuries rose 200% from 1991 to 2005. That trend is likely due to the increase in the availability of nail guns at home hardware stores, but no sales data are available to confirm that, notes the CDC.

The tools can be adjusted so that you drive the nail the proper depth. Be certain that you always follow the building code requirements for the type of nail, the shape of the head and the depth to which it must be driven. Be sure the nail gun you decide to purchase will work with code-compliant nails. Thirty years ago, I was using the most popular and rugged nail gun that was made at the time. My Senco SN4 gun was an air-powered beast and drove thousands of nails per workday without jamming. It worked tirelessly from sunup to sundown.
