A must for drywallers and stage set building.
I have owned three sets of these and the cordless deck screw-gun as well. All are excellent. New people will have a little bity of trouble getting used to using it as you have to be firm and continue pushing throughout the drive, but you can hang drywall a lot easier, especially if you are by yourself. I use it lot to build "Hollywood" flats, or a 4 x 8 frame built with 1 x 4's and sheathed with Luanne. With this tool I can increase my speed and do easily three times as much work in the same

amount of time. Also, when I screw these flats together to make stage walls, I can do it easily by myself as you don't have to try and hold a screw with one hand, the wall with another, and a third hand (which I don't have) to hold the drill. You still need another drill if you mis-screw as the reverse isn't really functional without taking the strips of screws out (a pain).
Seriously, if you want to save a LOT of time and hassle, but this gun, a cordless "Passlode" framing nailer and Passlode cordless finish nailer. They will also pay for themselves after just a job or two.
BTW, this will screw about 400-500 screws on a battery before you need to swap it. It comes with two batteries. My first one used the same batteries as the Ryobi One, but they switched design. The batteries generally last a couple of years if taken care of.
