you will have no problem nailing those mouldings around those window frames. those metal strips you're talking about are so thin your 16 gauge nails should go right through it. in fact your nails wouldn't even touch those metal strips, they're only about 3/4" wide beyond the window frame corners, you're going to nail at least 1 1/4" beyond that corner (considering 1/2" drywall was used), you'll hit right in the middle of the stud.
p.s. you will love your nail gun, you're going to ask yourself why you never bought before.
