Just FYI....nails

If any of you guys are rebuilding your fences from the Ike, (I know I'm lazy) make sure you get your nails before you start. Both home depot and lowes were out of the nails I needed for my gun unless I wanted to buy a huge box of them. I had 70 boards to nail up which equaled about 1,120 swings of the ol hammer

It was over 6k nails. The box I had before was less than 3k nails and it lasted me over 3 yrs. And that box fixed mine and my neighbors fence twice. Not to mention the prices on the nails have sky rocketed. If I remember correctly that box was $40 and now a box similar to that is $80...

I was going to buy one of those collated screw guns and use that but then they didn't have any galv nails for it, only drywall screws
