I wasn't sure if my first post came into this board or not so sorry for the double post if so.

My questions...

I'm shopping around for my first nail gun and I'm leaning towards a cordless nailer. I'm working on installing crown/base molding in several rooms, but other than that my projects may consist of an occassional bookcase, etc.

I've narrowed my choices down to the Senco Airfree 25 and the Porter Cable Cordless BN200V12. Has anyone owned/used either of these nailers that could provide more information?

Any distinctive pros/cons to give one the edge?

Most of the hand tools I have are Porter Cable so I'm happy with their quality, however for cordless nailers I've seen more information regarding Senco.

Also, I see on the jan-17 someone responded that a brad nailer is too weak for crown/base molding? Is this the general consensus? If so, then maybe I should look at the PC combo kit.

Many thanks,
Jared

I honestly dont think an electric nailer can cut it, they can only produce so much oomph to drive a nail. You best bet is to get a finish nailer that is powered by air. Brad nailers are good for projects that require 1" or less nail length, for crown and base you need at least 2 inch nails. The PC combo would be a good buy in your case, I have the nailer and stapler from PC and they are very good for trim work.
