best and that the electric are a waste of money. Any view to the contrary.

Thanks in advance.
You can get started with a brad/staple nailer from Harbor Freight for $20.
Swell for light duty jobs such as molding and baseboards.
I've got a small construction project pending (a shed), so I stepped up to
their framing nailer. 3 1/2 nail into a 4x4 is impressive.
I have been wanting one for a long time. I actually developed the need for
one, doing a remodel, and me doing the doors, casings, and baseboards.
I went to the local pawn shop, and they had a like new Porter Cable 1" to 2
1/2" finish nailgun. I got it for $75, and the same thing is $179 at the
Borg. After one day using it, I'm sold. I am going to build lots of things
I have been putting off because of lack of tools. I now have a table saw,
compound miter, and this nailer. A jointer planer is about all I could want
to finish it out and build things RIGHT.
They're like any other tool. Once you get it, you will find work for it.
They sure help do the work faster and better. No split molding, no
predrilling, no nail setting. I love it.
