I have an air compressor, but I don't think it's powerful enough for a typical air gun - it's one of those Porter Cable 2HP pancakes, something like 2.5cfm @ 90PSI.

After being bested by a few stubborn nuts last weekend, I've decided on pull the trigger on a 1/2" impact wrench. Milwaukee makes a few that I like, but I'm trying to decide whether to go with an 18V...
