When you work on a finish nailer, you need the head to be just below the board's surface so it can be filled easily with the nail filler. If your nails haven't been sunk completely, you can use a hammer and a nail set to drive them in completely (although, this is extra work which you shouldn't have to do if you do things right). The problem which you usually get is caused by either an insufficient amount of pressure from the compressor, or the depth on the adjustment dial which wasn't set correctly. If you're not sure with the settings you need to use, consult your operating manual and follow the instructions on how to correctly modify the depth adjustment.
Headless pinners - These are meant for very delicate and high precision work. They are used mainly craftsmen who are creating handmade items and need to use delicate fasteners to hold items together. These equipment use fasteners/nails that have no head and thus they can easily be hidden. In addition, the nails make very small entry marks that can easily be hidden.
Roofing nailers - Roofing nailers are an excellent example of tools made for a single purpose. These tools carry special nails for the purpose of roofing and roofing only. They can store a large number of nails at a time and are usually coil-type.
I have spent my life as a carpenter on building sites making a living from the talents of the trade that I posses and the vast array of quality tools in my kit. They say a good tradesman should never blame his tools! Which is true, and I have never met a good tradesman with low quality tools.
When you're using the finish nailer, have the tip positioned on to the trim board where you want to have the nail driven. Then, carefully adjust its position so that you'll drive the nail in the right direction. Usually, when the finish nailer's cylinder and its tip line up perpendicularly to the board's face, it gets your nail driven squarely in the board. In some cases however, you need to adjust the nail's angle so you can capture enough wood behind the molding or trim you're using.
