The latest product from Dewalt. An electric nail gun.

Apparently it is ability to place nails within a 1/8” circle from a range of 30 feet. Great for those ceiling joists!

Will also work great on tree houses!

I see it is using the tried and true 18v nicad power system. With the distance the nail is required to travel I thought they would use a Lith Ion or Lith Poly type of battery. Or at least use a 36v.

Looks very similar to what the canadian military are using is Afganistan to help rebuild the country.

LOL. That was funny G.

Methinks you’d better have pretty good aim or you’re going to waste a lot of nails.

Those .223 nails are awesome. And the 30 round collated-nail banana clips are the height of convenience.
Is there a .762 NATO version (probably Bosch makes that one)?

LOL… I prefer the .223 nails. It’s a nice nail load that’s not too expensive to do some heavy framing with. I hear DeWalt also makes a fully auto 24 volt nail gun with a 100 round mag and holographic sights by EOTech for serious framers.

I’ve never used one of these, but I think I’d be more comfortable if my friend had a hammer and I was holding the nail than I would be if my friend had one of these and I was the board holder.

Do you need a firearms permit to buy one of these?

Got to get me one of these – I am sure with a 36V battery, I can increase the range, if not the fire power!!!!!!!!!
