    Just seen a article on Fox News, a contractor shot himself in the thigh with a 3" ring shank nail from nail gun.:D

    Quote from article:

    Nail guns are responsible for an estimated 37,000 emergency room visits each year, with 68 percent of cases involving construction workers and 32 percent involving consumers. Severe accidents have even lead to death, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    Intrested to know how many accidents we have in the UK with nail guns,trade & diy.
    Been a few nasty ones in the UK over last few years.

    Just do a Google search for "Nail gun head" and chose images - some rather startling pictures.
