New Nail Gun by DeWalt Drives Nails from 200 Yards-Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:

The DeWalt Tool Company has introduced a new product.  It is a rapid fire nail gun that makes home repairs and construction easy.  Dad can now sit in the comfort of the front porch and drive nails into 2X4’s from a distance of 200 yards.

The Truth:


A representative from the DeWalt Industrial Tool Company told TruthOrFiction.Com that this is a joke and that they have no such product.   The tools that they have for nailing are called Nail Drivers.

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:

DeWalt Nail Gun

A must have in every home in America !
For everyone who would rather not have a gun in the house!
In view of the recent Supreme Court ruling, sales of this new product may skyrocket. Washington thinks they are going to take away our guns, so check this out. I like it! NAIL GUNS! AND, you don’t even have to REGISTER them or have LICENSES for them!  AND, you don’t have to worry about them being CONCEALED!

Just a LOT of good stuff to do with THIS!   Once in awhile something so totally cool comes out that even a guy who doesn’t normally even know what he’d like for Father’s Day or Christmas would immediately ask for it:
Thank you, DeWalt!!!

New Nail Gun, made by DeWalt
It can drive a 16-D nail through a 2×4 at 200 yards.  This makes construction a breeze, you can sit in your lawn chair and build a fence. Just get your wife to hold the fence boards in place while you sit back, And relax and when she has the board in the right place, just fire away. With the hundred round magazine, you can build the fence with a minimum of reloading. After a day of fence building with the new DeWalt Rapid fire nail gun, the wife will not ask you to build or fix anything else, probably, ever again.
