You don’t use a nail gun to install flooring. You use a flooring nailer, which is a totally different tool. This does assume you are going to mill tongue and groove connections between floor boards.

It’s pretty tough to get a new planer that’s worth it for a couple hundred dollars. Used via Craigslist is what most of us due on a limited budget starting out. Best bet is probably a Dewalt 734, which can be had for $320 or so reconditioned or $399 new.

I’d skip the miter saw if you have a table saw and are on a small budget.

Do remember that to use the planer, you need one face flat. You use a jointer for that.
