In my experience they don't have the power to fire a brad fully into the wood you are trying to nail.

For the price of a professional electric nail gun you could buy a small compressor and a standard nail gun. This would potentially have far more use with other accessories.

I've had an electric Maestri 30-08 mini pinner for years, works well but you do need to hold it down firm or have a good backer like a door frame or cabinet. I paid a lot of money for mine years ago but I think they are around the £200/250 mark now.

For what you want it for, I personally wouldnt go for an electric one but an air nailer and compressor as Steve suggested.

I got a little compressor and bostich inner when my dewalt cordless died as a stop gap. That was 7 years ago, it is brilliant even if you have to lug the compressor to site. Plus the brads are cheap.
