.22 Nail Gun

I used a .22 caliber "Power Actuated" nail gun made my Remington for the first time today.
What kick-ass fun those things are!!!
All these years, I've been drilling holes in concrete to sink an anchor into the wall. No more!!!

For those of you unfamiliar, you load a .22 blank cartridge into a chamber, close the chamber, load a nail with a plastic wadding in the muzzle, place the barrel against a hard surface, and pull the trigger!!
The pressure on the barrel activates the trigger and the expanding gas forces the nail into concrete. Its bonerific! Plus, it made my office smell like the AGC.

In other news, I'm surprised that these aren't regulated firearms in MD. I'm sure if O'Malley knew these existed that I would have to register it. Bastards. Hands off my tools!

Dad and I used something similar when we finished our basement. We used it to anchor nails (and the framing studs) to the floor. Ours needed to be hit with a hammer to fire, but same general concept.

I've seen 'em used, but never had the personal pleasure of shooting a nail with a powder charge. They must be fun . The standard pneumatic nail drivers are kinda like CO2 pellet guns in comparison I'm sure.

I 'spose this must be said at least once: "Only police and military..." - yada yada yada

I always called em ramsets. They are great for easy anchoring into concrete, especially on a ladder or something where you can't be leaning hard into a hammerdrill.

I hated seeing the ramset after hanging a couple hundred ceiling wires for light supports. The inspector was a d*ck about it. We had to have our ceiling wires individually marked to tell the apart from the wires for the drop ceiling.

Yeah, actually that's a fairly recent rule change. We used to mark them on our own on certain jobs because, sometimes, the ceiling guys would use ours..lol.. I think the inspectors actually stole the idea from us..
