I'm not familiar with that specific gun, but it sounds like the spring that pushes the nails into the "chamber" isn't working. Either it's broken/defective, or the gun somehow allows you to put the nails in wrong (which seems unlikely). Take it back and see what the next one does.


Check the pressure Check the recommended pressure range listed on the gun, and make sure the compressor is putting out a pressure within that range. I've seen similar symptoms when the pressure was too low. Presumably the hammer didn't have enough energy to move the nail, so it skipped over it instead. Properly load the nails If the nails are not ...


That screw seems to have found the magic spot and I think it's unlikely to happen again, however you might want to somehow strap a protection plate around the Tee; I wouldn't worry about the rest of the pipe.
