Default .22 nail gun

I was watching bob villa home again(dont ask me why) and I saw some guys using a weird nail gun it used .22 shells and fired nails into concrete and was single shot. Are these considered firearms?

nope, not weapons. you can get one down at your local hardware store or home improvement center. they're not even locked up or behind a counter. the .22 cal blanks are out in the open too.

i'd hate to be the one to try to fire a loaded cartridge out of one of those.

i think i handled one once. never operated it nor examined it's construction.

You have to push down on the business end or it won't fire. There is also a 'rod' in the 'barrel' that drives
the 'nail' into the work. If you tried putting a cartridge in there you just might have yourself a Remington Hand Grenade.
If you want to try it let me know, I'll go elsewhere.

Not accurate at all. I have one thats a pistol single shot and I caught one of my guys messing around on the jobsite with it trying to shoot coke cans. After watching him screw around for 10 minutes I walked in took it away and sent him home for the day.
there are different styles. they are called powder actuated nail guns. Has a ton more kick than shooting a regular .22 though. I also had a Hilti pistol and it was somewhat semi auto. had a stripper clip with rounds and you pumped it like a shotgun to rechamber a new blank. pretty cool design. too bad some jerk stole it off my work cart one day.
another reason i lock up all my tools even on the jobsite

They are not accurate at all (at least mine aren't). I won't be mounting a red dot to mine anytime soon..

They will however bring a very nervous cop into your open garage when an idiot neighbor reports gunshots.

Buddy of mine and I built a workbench and some heavy duty shelving for his garage. We used a Ramset powder nailer to secure the legs to the concrete garage floor. Almost got a gun pulled on us by the local PD.

Cop thought it was pretty funny once he realized what we were up to.

Are the nail guns sold locally restricted to strips of just 10 nails?

oh man... I learned the hard way not to fire those things without a nail in them into concrete.

was in the back of the shop, fired one and much to my suprize i found my arm full of concrete, was bleeding pretty bad for how small the holes were. Just then my boss came in and saw me wiping down my arm, and he goes "ah that nailgun right?" He told me he did the same thing when he bought it

My dad (or his contractor) has a couple semi auto ones - I believe. Never saw it, he said it was not that good.

I've played with a semi auto (air) nail gun at my old job site- much past 1 foot, they don't do much, and start to flip. The aren't designed to be projectile weapons- just to hammer a nail into concrete.

The .22 concrete nail guns work the same way, just have more power! And they're LOUD.

My friends had thought of buying one for defense in Mexico at their hotel since guns are illegal- I told them a claw hammer would be a better weapon.

Anyone remember the MythBusters superhero special where they used one? More than me, of course.
