    What sort of task would you need bump fire on a finish nailer? I’ve used a couple different MAX brand rebar tie-ers. They work awesome for tying huge mats. I’m sure the quality of this nailer is similar.

      Good point about bump nailing. I think that feature is to appease the older clan that can’t stand today’s safety features. Then again MAX won’t send out demo’s….so we’ll never know.
