Incendiary Image of the Day: DeWalt Nail Gun Edition

DeWalt Nail gun AR (courtesy craigslist.org)

From losangeles.craigslist.org:

“It can drive a 16-D nail through a 2×4 at 20 yards. This makes construction a breeze, you can sit in your lawn chair and build a fence. Just get your wife to hold the fence boards in place while you sit back, And relax and when she has the board in the right place, just fire away. With the hundred round magazine, you can build the fence with a minimum of reloading. After a day of fence building with the new DeWalt Rapid fire nail gun, the wife will not ask you to build or fix anything else, probably, ever again.”

    So when did baby sh1t yellow become an option for the color of gun furniture?

    1. avatar Dave says:

      The same time zombie neon green and pink did.

    2. avatar Jon says:

      Its Dewalt yellow…you know, the same color on all of their tools? Its not a real gun, BTW.

    SPAM filter targeting me again. TEST.

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      I see nothing in the filter for you. Are you referring to the blank white page with the URL of http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/wp-comments-post.php ?

      If so, that’s not the spam filter, it’s a back-end issue, and it’s not just you. If you hit your back button and wait a minute or three and try again, it should clear itself.

    Short Barreled Nail Gun?

  4. avatar disthunder says:

    That. Is. Awesome.

  5. avatar Jay1987 says:

    Is it wrong that ,one, that nail gun gives me man tingles in my happy place and ,two, that I really really want that nail gun??

    1. avatar Fake Name says:

      It is not wrong. All of us want that thing.

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        If you’re talking about the happy place thing, you’re speaking for yourself.

        1. avatar Fake Name says:

          I am not talking about the happy place.. thing.

    All other things aside (some of the commentary in the ad was over the top), it is a very funny idea. Whoever made that SBNG or managed to Photoshop it, well done.

    1. The M-16 apparently actually exists with these clever modifications:

    that is awesome. unfortunately for my bank account, my first reaction is that i have to have it.

    1. avatar dwb says:

      Doh!

      http://www.snopes.com/photos/technology/nailgun.asp

      but its such a good idea someone ought to build it.

  8. avatar Dave says:

    I don’t see anything incendiary about it. It’s also nothing new. This dates back to 2008.

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      I thought I’d seen it before. It’s still pretty amusing.

      1. avatar Dave says:

        Than how about the amusing picture of the day?

    2. avatar Will says:

      My thoughts, exactly.

      1. avatar justice06rr says:

        +2. I’d buy 2 of them, one for home improvement, and another as home defense lol.

  9. avatar Bryan says:

    Just in time for Christmas, I’m looking through my Home Depot catalog now!

    “After a day of fence building with the new DeWalt Rapid fire nail gun, the wife will not ask you to build or fix anything else, probably, ever again.”

    Whatever their asking for it, this makes it priceless!

  10. avatar Brennan says:

    This is reallllllllllllllly old. And it’s real. They cut up a battery and molded the shell around the mag.

    There’s also a Milwaukee rifle pic floating around on a wall of Milwaukee power tools

  11. avatar major says:

    Old but gold. Er, yellow.

  12. avatar Nine says:

    Is it wrong that I’d put sights on it?

  13. avatar Swarf says:

    Meh. It’s still a DeWalt.

  14. avatar JustLeaveLawfulGunOwnersAlone says:

    why are we driving traffic to a repost from 5 years ago?

  15. avatar rhampton says:

    Equivalent to a pathetically underpowered railgun, like so. Now that’s how you scare the wife.

  16. avatar Matt says:

    I love the idea of AR furniture in sporty/utility colors.

    Hazard orange?
    Caterpillar yellow?
    Laguna Seca blue?

    Mmm…yes please

  17. The most cumbersome nailgun ever…

  18. avatar TT says:

    Its an Assault hammer!

  19. avatar rt-texas says:

    Is it available MOE in FDE? If so, I want.

  20. avatar Jus Bill says:

    The day Home Depot gets an FFL, I’m there!

  21. avatar ensitue says:

    My Chinese Type 57 nail gun does the same job, when dirty, and cost half as much.
    Of course the nails bend, but that’s part of the fun!

  22. avatar Samuel Suggs says:

    Can someone please tell me why this is “incendiary”

  23. avatar JeremyR says:

    I’ve seen one that was actually a battery charger. The mag well was molded a touch wider to allow the battery to fit inside. All the internals from the charger were fitted in. The upper was a real SBR or pistol upper.

  24. avatar jimbthepilot says:

    I’m thinking this has got to be law enforcement only. And the picture has to be an LEO’s gun, right? I mean, the optic is mounted backward.
    /sarc off

  25. avatar Neil Schmidt says:

    Jeeesh! At least they could have offered it with a stainless steel Krieger match barrel and a Geissele trigger. Wassa wrong with those guys??

  26. avatar Kirsten says:

    I need this gun. For Reasons.

    1. avatar jimbthepilot says:

      Care to nail down what those reasons might be?

  27. It’s fantastic that you are getting ideas from this paragraph as well as from
    our argument made here.
