As you can see, these prices are insane. It's a whole lot of tool for not a lot of price. We've tested out a couple of CH's homeowner line and while they're not pro-grade tools, they work. And if you need to get some things done and you don't want to spend a ton of money, we think these kits look really nice.

And while know that CH is really gearing these toward the DIYer and homeowner, we actually think that it's a nice deal for the contractor as well given the price. Sure, the gun isn't a Cadex or a Bostitch, but it's going to work and if you need an additional set-up for punch list projects or something to get an apprentice going, $80-$140 is short money.
