The only time I used a nailer was the manual kind on some 3/4 T&G like 25 years ago. How do these work? I see they are air but include a "slugging hammer" as the HF description calls it. I assume hitting the black button with the hammer is what triggers the nail driven by air? I mean if the air is driving the nail why do you need to "slug" it? 25 years ago the long hours of bending and fully swing slugging to drive were bad enough. I can imagine at 2x+ that age. I mean I'm pretty limber and conditioned but I certainly prefer to work smarter, hence air, so what's with the slugging hammer?
Anyone have this particular tool? Pros and cons appreciated. Jams?, will it use widely available nails/cleats like Bostitch?, fully drives fasteners?, anything else? I have a pancake 150psi compressor which should be fine since it states "Maximum air operating pressure: 100 PSI".
