I draw a line and aim carefully. Since I don’t use pin nails or anything else like that where it might show, I don’t worry too much about them being in a perfect line. The important thing, especially with pins, is that they don’t blow out the side of the board. I’ve actually had them do a U-turn and come out the face I was driving them into. They are easily diverted by the grain of the wood. The chisel geometry of the pins causes them to be more prone to curve sideways, relative to the nailer. Keep that in mind when you are aligning the nailer.
