Hold a nail gun for three seconds...and win a truck?

Pretty much.

Paslode is running what they call the Pick It Up Challenge and there is going to be someone, somewhere out there (you?) who wins a 2015 Ford F-150 for simply picking up a nail gun.

The rules are thus: The promotion runs through October 31st and in order to enter, just head your pretty little self off to a Lowes or Home Depot and find the display for the Paslode F325R Compact Framing Nailer, pick one up (I'm assuming that there is a sample available, likely chained to the display), then scan the QR code to enter. It all sounds very, very basic and easy.

And while you're at it, I would strongly recommend that you consider purchasing one of said compact framing guns. I recently reviewed it for Tools of the Trade and it's really great. The body of the gun is a little smaller than the norm, but the magazine is completely truncated. So sure, it has a smaller nail capacity (about 40 nails at a time), but it's easier to maneuver and way lighter. The whole thing isn't even six pounds. It's actually smaller than my old Senco finish gun.

Obviously if you're a framer, you're going to turn your sunburnt nose up at this thing, but a remodeler will really enjoy using it. Honestly, if you're a DIYer, this is really all you need. Why bother haul around a massive gun if you're not going to benefit from it. Is it that important to impress your neighbor? How many racks of nails are you really going through in a day?
