Cedar Shingles Per Day

I know its been asked a million times before but the answers all vary so much. How many sq of tapersawn 24 cedar shingles can an average guy install per day with a gun? 4 pitch, wide open no penetrations, perfect weather, roof completely prepped, installing on lathe on top of solid decking. 7.5 reveal which 1 sq only covers 75sq ft.

I was thinking maybe 3? For an average guy? We do mostly residential asphalt reroofs so not a bunch of expert cedar guys but pretty hard workers. I know its so hard to answer but any insight would be helpful!
