    For Your Information:



    A Daisy Powerline 15XT CO2 BB pistol will not shoot a nail through a sheet rock wall at 5ft.



    That is all.

    If you wrap duct tape around the safety and tear a hole in it for the nail to pass through the pesky safety will no longer get in the way.

    and if you jump off a house on the a pile of cedar shingles that were just torn off, and land on 16 Pennie nail wearing only and old pair of vans
    it will go threw your foot and all the way through the shoe
    making you wonder ,
    A: why did that hurt so much
    and,
    B:why is there a board stuck to my foot?

    Ahh, if your being talked to when puting a wall together , you may( and I wouldn't know for sure:whistle: )not pay enough attention to where your nail gun is and just shoot yourself through your shoe into you big toe and nail both of them to your second toe...And when it's the main contractor, you divert his attention and change the subject til he leaves, then remove the nail with the claw of your framing hammer.... But then agian I siad, I wouldn't know....:D

    If you hold the safety back on a nail gun you can shoot at birds
