    15 gauge finish nails in LOS?

    I'll post an easier question than the glazing one. I bought an 18 volt cordless De Walt finish nailer that uses nails from 1 and one fourth inches long to 2 and a half inches long. Because of the weight of the boxes of nails, I would prefer to buy them in LOS. Are 15 guage finish nails available? Thanks!

    Yes, I realized that I mis-spelled "gauge (guage)."

    I'm assuming that I can buy the nails in LOS but with no responses, I bought a box of 16,000 nails off the internet and will take a packet of 2,000 nails in my suitcase just in case. I'll leave the rest of the nails here in my U.S. storage locker for the next trip to U.S. in October. By the way, for future reference, what are 15 gauge nails called in the U.K.? I'd really hate to upset MD and DD again.

    What are the DeWalt finish nailers like? they just run on battery right, no gas?
    I have always used paslode guns, but i have heard the DeWalt is pretty good.
    is it heavier and bulkier than the paslode?

    Two thousand nails in your suitcase?

    I'd explain yourself fully at check-in to avoid a rectal probe.

    they are in a box about the size of 2 packets of smokes, not as bulky as you might think.

    They are heavy for their size but the pack is maybe 10-12 inches long and two inches in diameter. It will go into a checked bag, so as to not be confiscaded by TSA.
