Stick nailer.Understanding the different nailer firing methods will help you choose a tool for your projects and help you avoid accidental firing. Note that manufacturers may have different names for firing methods. On most nailers, the firing method depends on the operation of two controls: a trigger and a safety tip that you depress against the work surface.

Contact or "bump" firing lets you rapidly drive nails in succession. As long as you're holding down the trigger, each bump of the safety tip against the work surface fires a nail. This type of firing speeds up production work, but can be difficult to control. There is a higher risk of unintentional firing than with other methods.

Single-sequential firing prevents you from bump-firing nails. You must operate the safety tip and trigger in sequence to fire the first nail. However, you can keep the safety tip pressed against the work surface and simply release and reactivate the trigger for each additional nail.

Single-actuation firing functions like single-sequential firing, but to fire the first nail, you can operate the safety tip and trigger in any order. This means that you can bump-fire the first nail.

Full-sequential firing makes safe operation easier by requiring sequential activation of the safety tip and trigger to fire each nail. You cannot bump-fire. You must first activate the safety tip and then the trigger to fire a nail. To fire the next nail, you release the tip and the trigger and then reactivate them in the correct sequence. This method does not let you work as quickly as contact firing, but it's less likely to fire a nail unintentionally.

Smaller, trigger-operated nailers don’t have safety tips. They use a single trigger or dual triggers to fire a nail. With single-trigger tools, pulling the trigger drives a nail. Dual-trigger tools require you to pull the triggers in the proper sequence.
