Millennial criticism from presumably older generation authors always seems a bit odd to me.

Key driver for a child's development is parents - so I guess these are all about how bad boomers are as parents?

And isn't this just the flip side of old people being bad at technology?

First, one must figure out which end to hit....

Had a buddy of mine who could really swing a hammer...One good tap to start, one more swing to hammer it in. That's pretty good with a roofing tack. He was doing that with ten penny nails.

Yeah, I have known a couple guys like that. I get OK if I am doing a large framing project like a basement, but too long between efforts to maintain the skill.

I have considered it.
I have a cheap HF one. Not good for engineered lumber, but worth its weight in gold. My smaller stuff - the 15 gauge finish nailer and Brad nailer are oil less Bostitch.

Just make sure your framer shoots a full head and not a clipped head nail.

Do one decent job and you'll wonder how you ever did without one.
