Hi Rob

The 2 3/8" nails will do the job just fine,put them on 6" centers you can use screws but it's a over kill thing the norm,it's just a small cabin ,,right most of the nails now days are ring shank type,made for that type of job

as a side note,the nail-er are fun to use,bang,bang,bang,bang,bang, take that, I recall the 1st time I used mine I must have used 1/2 big Box of 3 1/4" long nails,it was so neat to drive in a 3" nail with just a shot of air..

By code, the nails only need to be 50mm long, but the straight shank is throwing me off. I'm sure they'll be fine, but I was wondering what you guys thought.
