New Nail Gun to Hit the Market?comments (3) July 7th, 2009 in Blogs
Alright, I'll be honest—I had absolutely no idea what to make of this photograph when I first saw it. Created by one "David Wiggins," this DeWalt-themed nail gun is said to be able to "drive a 6d nail through a 2x4 at 200 yards."
For those of you interested in "long distance building," however, this isn't what it seems. It's apparently nothing more than a cosmetic touch-up to a real firearm. Some folks simply have too much time on their hands. It raises a question regarding construction nomenclature, however. "Nail gun" or "pneumatic nailer?" The term "pneumatic nailer" has—as far as I can recall—never come out of my mouth. That said, it was recently pointed out to me that times are changing, and the pneumatic term is gaining in popularity. So, which do you prefer? Take the poll.
