    Curious what brand everyone uses for their finish nailers? I use bostich currently but thinking about selling my kit and buy a new quiter compressor and figured I’d buy some new guns as well.

    I like the Hitachi trim guns. I have had them for 3 years now without a problem. lowes had the 18 ga 15 ga nailers with a 6 gallon compressor for 269 so I couldn’t pass that up. I have used a Hitachi 16 ga gun a little to and it also works nice. I have used the porter cable guns but I don’t like them very we’ll.

    Senco 15g finish guns, Porter Cable 18g brad nailers, HF 23g pinner. Senco 1 gal. trim compressor is light, quiet, and enough for one gun. Also we have a Paslode cordless finish gun for punch out.

    I have some older Porter Cables and LOVE them, they’re my go-to

    I have a Hitachi 15g and a cordless Ridgid 15ga–They both serve their purpose.

    I just purchased the Bosch 18 gauge brad nailer and BTP points got the Bosch 16 gauge nailer for me. I haven’t had any time to check them out. Hope to do this this weekend. I will write reviews.

    Hitachi 15 and 18 gauge. And an older Senco 23 gauge that needs replacing.

    Porter Cable and Bostitch air nailers, HF pinner, and Ridgid and Ryobi battery operated guns. I very rarely drag out the air nailers any more.

    I have some older Porter Cables, three Paslodes, and one Ridgid. The old PC’s get used the most – I agree with Kam, they are some great guns.

    I got a new 18 brad a Cadex a few months ago, love it. A Hitachi 23 and 15 and they’ve both been pretty good to me over the years. Had heard some bad things about the 18 Hitachi so went for the Cadex instead.

    I like my bostitch nailer just not the compressor ( too loud).

    Any pref or reason straight vs angled nailers?

    It probably don’t matter but I feel like my angled trimmer allows me to toe nail base in ways a straight gun won’t.

    Yep. Easier to get into some places.

    Lots of hitachi lovers out there.

    I’m guessing the PC nailers are the older ones?

    Senco 15 ga. and 18 ga.
    ROK 23 ga. (because I couldn’t afford the Hitachi that day)
