Screws if you can afford enough. They grip alot better and don't come loose overtime like nails do.

yep its gotta be screws because they have the thread on them which grips much better.

but if you guys say that screws are stronger then why are houses built out of nails?

screws hold better by fair..my dads is one of the largest homebuilders around, they use nails for holding studs in place but screws for ceramic floors... they also use screws for decking hold nice and tight

how big of an air nailer? construction or finishing?

construction air nailer

if you are in a hurry or tight for cash use the air nailer

it will last longer and be stronger with screws though
