    Hey all, Its been about 4 days. This is great! Well on Wed. at work me my buddy/co-worker, were putting in a attic access for a shop. I was up in the storage area sitting danggling my feet down waiting for him to cut something. Well on his way back he decides to play a joke on me and act like he's ganna shoot me in the foot with the frame nailer, well he gets a bit too close and the gun goes off popping 2 3" 12b nails in my foot. :eek: Hurt like a bitch!!! Now im out for 4 weeks getting payed, lol..

    Hey Jester, I like that little cartoon you got going on! I'm going to have to try that in real life and use my truck for it somewhere. Maybe like a snowman stuck under a Taco type picture! Haha!!:D

    16d in left palm nailing dead wood for banister between studs. Made a nice "tent of skin" on the back side. Pulled it out before I could think about it and wrapped it with duct tape and a paper towel (bank was on me to finish the house). It took a second to find that second nail but I saved the window at the bottom of the stairwell! Sounds like there may be a link between Tacos and nail guns?

    Unless the owner of the shop is really stupid he should be fired. Technically that is assault with a deadly weapon not just horseplay. Insurance companies don't like these kind of things not to mention OSHA.

    To be honest, I thought it was Chris4X4 making the post! But really, the guy fooling around with a nailgun was a total moron who should be fired and sued!!!!!! To bad you took the brunt of his assholeness.(if thats a word)
