SAFETY CONCERNS................. I would like to say that this is an amazing little tool but had expressed and have read a number of comments in regards to the safety trigger sensitivity. Unfortunately I was shot in the leg, required two attempts to locate the pin and have it removed, I was in hospital for the night as the surgeries were about 8 hours apart. I am fine and recovered to full speed but being an active male, I was out of action training for some time. I have tried to informed Bostitch personally about my safety concerns about this accident as I feel I got off lucky as a co-worker had a near mis with an eye when first purchased and actually dry fired his hand after my leg was hit. We are both very skilled 20 year vets of carpentry with no work accident history. I am interested in hearing others thoughts about this stated concern, I urged Bostitch to address this safety issue. They took my old gun (was quite new) replaced it with a new one and I have not heard from them since. That was almost 4 months ago now. Little disappointed in a company I actually have respect in there tools and design. GOOD DAY ALL
