Oh, yeah, a nail gun.  Quite a common power tool in DIY stores and building sites.  Hours of fun to be had from them ajb007/wink

Although you won't find one that actually shoots nails through the air! You have to place it against a wall or floor for it to drive nails out as that's horribly dangerous; the movies lie to us! ajb007/smile

And thank goodness the movies do lie to us. I'm a sucker for a bad one line quip
Person 1:"What happened to him?'

Bond: "I nailed him." LOL!!!

Some people would complain even if you hang them with a new rope
