"His colleagues said Isidro was using a nailgun that has both manual and fully automatic settings," said deputy sheriff Dan McPherson.


It looks like the UK is going to have to do something about those assault nail guns!

If you read the end of the article, it says the nailgun has semi and full-auto settings. That's how the person accidentally shot him six times. But I sure hate when reporters say that something "went off".

That's it folks..............The UK will ban them for sure.

It's for indiscriminately spray-firing from the hip to mow down lots of boards.

auto refers to the fact that it shoots when pressure is applied to the plate on the front of the gun, so you can just push it against what you want to nail, instead of by manually squeezing the trigger

We had full auto pneumatic staple guns when I worked in the furniture industry. It made upholstering a dream.
Also worked for shooting birds that sometimes flew into the factory. We would diasble the safety plate in order to get the staples into the corners better. They had a button on the side that when you pressed it, it was semi auto only...but most of the time, they were full auto. AND FUN!

They do that sometimes you know. Nail guns that is.

Oh, and this was in Los Angeles, not the UK.

Looks like an attempt to claim worker comp to me.

Glad he's ok, though.

Yeah, I noticed that too.... "It was an accident...."

Same line of thought evidently, as the two "detectives" with Fairfax County who asked me if I thought that my fiancee had
committed suicide. "Oh yeah, sure. She shot herself that many times in the back...W(here)TF are your brains?!?!"
They weren't amused....
