Hello stevenharris65 and welcome to the community!


A Ramset MasterShot is one of the easiest tools to use to anchor 2x4 studs on to concrete.Watch the video below and you will see how really easy it is to use.


There are variety of different types of tools and in different price ranges to suit your needs

With all due respect, it's clear that whomever created the video of the Ramset MasterShot did not take the time to read the instruction manual.  The manual clearly says that the fasterner should be inserted BEFORE the power load.  You never, ever want to put your fingers, hand, or any body part in front of a loaded tool as serious injury may result.  While the odds of it going off are extremely small, that's what safety rules are all about - anticipating the worst.


The instruction manual also clearly illustrates that the operator's finger should be OFF the trigger until the the operator is ready to discharge the tool.


There's also no mention of the absolute necessity of wearing approved eye and ear protection. 


Frankly, I think this video should be pulled as it shows unsafe practices.
