Nail gun blues


Just spent a very frustrating day in Los cabos trying to find 3" round head 21 degree nails for my framing nail gun. Nobody has them. Truly a day I should have been drinking cerveza. Anybody have any ideas? Even Amazon says it will take them two weeks:(

You don't need to shut down the job because you're out of nails for your nail gun. Use a hammer to pound nails until you get your replacement nails. Easy peasy. Problem solved. Next?

That's what I'm doing, mtgoat. Gets old fast - like using a carrier pigeon when you are used to a cell phone. Nobody out there has any?

I wish that they did, but like everywhere else in town, they just sell finish nails for nail guns. I threw in the towel and ordered some from Amazon with 100 bucks for shipping. (Ouch). They said they would ship the next day and take two weeks to arrive. The next day they still hadn't shipped so I wrote them an email asking why?? An Indian gentleman wrote me an email from Hyderabad apologizing profusely, waiving the shipping charges, and upgrading delivery to global priority :bounce:
