Abstract
Nail guns (nailers, pneumatic hammers, pneumatic nailers, and air-powered nailers) are fairly new types of tools. If the nail is not properly aimed and is shot before the operator is ready, it becomes hazardous. Many nail gun-related injuries occur from trigger misfires. Examples of misfires include double firing and unintended firing from accidental contact with the gun or a coworker.
