    Oh, yeah, a nail gun. Quite a common power tool in DIY stores and building sites. Hours of fun to be had from them ;)

    Although you won't find one that actually shoots nails through the air! You have to place it against a wall or floor for it to drive nails out as that's horribly dangerous; the movies lie to us! :)

    Some people would complain even if you hang them with a new rope
