    I'm looking for a nail gun but being new to all this, I'm not sure which to go for.

    I'll need one for nailing up to two 4" timbers together. That's very probably the most I'll ever need it for

    Can you recommend a nail gun for under £150 please, or would I need to spend more?

    That will require a first fix gun and even then you'd need to skew nail because the longest nails you can get for guns is 90mm. A gas or cordless first fix will cost £350 to £600 and a pack of 90mm nails with gas will run you £60 or so. You might want to consider drilling and bolting together with square washers and star washers in the middle instead

    Thanks J&P

    That's expensive - maybe in a few years perhaps

    You can pick up a first fix hitachi for about £250
    I have the second fix hitachi and I have not had any problems.
