I have the PC P350 Clipped Head Framing Nailer and it's a great nailer in my opinion. You'll get a variety of opinions here but ultimately the decision is up to you and what you want to spend.

By the way, and because it's your first post, you should know that you shouldn't use all CAPS here. It makes it hard to read and indicates you are yelling as opposed to just talking.

Reguardless of what brand you choose you should make sure that the nails will fit both guns yours and your contractors so you dont have to by 2 different nails. I have 2 old Senco's that are so so but have used Paslode and Hitchia and feel they have more power.

I have used the bostich, PC, and hitachi. The hitachi is the best in my opinion.

-old

ps i also used an old craftsman piece of garbage that used bostich nails...not really worth mentioning...lol
