As to the safety features of these nailers, they usually have a safe nose which needs to be depressed before its trigger is engaged and be pulled. For most types, they will also include an anti-marring tip made of rubber. This tip is made to be slipped on top of the nose's tip to prevent the nailer from possibly giving damage to the wood and molding which is being nailed.
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 buying finish nailers for the first time, the question you need to decide between a pneumatic or cordless type. The pneumatic type of nailer uses an air compressor to power it and conversely, the cordless nailer uses a combination of the compressed air canister air and a rechargeable battery in driving the nail through stock. Obviously, an advantage with a cordless unit is not having a cord attached to it but it may be a bit heavier because of the battery.
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.
As I say you should be looking for good quality from a well know brand such as Bostitch, Hitachi, DeWALT, Porter Cable, Milwaukee, Max,Makita, Duo-Fast, Wen, Paslode, Ridgid, Senco and Craftsman.
