Which nail gun?

Hi chaps,

Considering using a nail gun rather than hammer to attach 200 fence pales to the rails for a picket fence. Guess I'll need two nails per rail per pale, so 4 per pale, which is 800 nails. No thanks.

Question is, what type of nail gun do I want to hire? I know many will be too powerful. Where do you get the appropriate galvanised nails? At the hire shop.

Any advice is appreciated.

Why not transfer your post to the tools forum?

But, FWIW: go to the Hire shop and they will set you right for a cordless gun and nails.
Why even bother with a nail gun? They can be dangerous in unskilled hands, and 800 fixings by hand is neither here nor there.
