Can a Nail Gun be Used like a Firearm?

Nail Gun as a Weapon

It has the word “gun” in its name, so a nail gun should be a fine substitute for a traditional firearm, right? (Shutterstock image)

I’m over at crime writer Sue Coletta’s stellar blog today discussing whether a nail gun can actually be used like a firearm. I won’t spoil it for you, but I take a look at how a nail in flight compares to a bullet fired from a traditional gun. It turns out there’s a simple mathematical formula to help determine just that. Take a look. I think you’ll enjoy the analysis.

Later this week, I’ll have a guest post here at CrimeFictionBook.com from writer Graham Smith, who wrote a nail gun into his next crime novel based on his experience using the tools professionally. I guess it’s Nail Gun Week or something.

Also, I’m split on whether the correct way to write this tool is “nail gun” or “nailgun.” I’m going with the first version, but you may disagree.
