You can also shoot three or four 23 ga pins that are shorter than the thickness of the board into one face and clip them with diagonal cutters.

I’m sure it’s obvious that if the pins go in flush with the board, the above trick is worthless. One good way to make sure the pins stand proud of the surface is to shoot them through a thin board, maybe 1/8” to 1/16”, laying on top of the board you want to glue. The thin board will lift off of the pins easily and there will be enough pin protruding to snip like described above.
