Impossible. Nail guns do not have rifled barrels. The nails just
tumble through the air. Maybe one in ten would actually stick in the
plywood. As for accuracy you would be lucky to hit the plywood.
I have a couple of nail guns and have tried shooting them.
If your wondering why, a friend saw my Paslode cordless framer. He had
seen movies where they used the nailer as a gun. I bet him a box of
beer that it was BS and won. That being said you wouldn't want to be
standing in the line of fire. Those nails are really moving when they
come out of the nailers.
Likely all they did in the movie was to start with the finished
"picture" edit in a blank plywood sheet, then slowly edit the nails
back into view.
Reading this thread leads me to believe a few or you guys believe the
video. I guess P.T. Barnum was, there's a sucker born every minute.
If your still dumb enough to think "Duh! Da nails always go in
straight" then "Duh! Da range is less than an inch" about the length
of your perception.
Box of beer anyone? :)
