I have a HF nailer and, like you, could not justify the price of a real one.  It
works fine for my use (occasional remodel, built a shed, will build a small
garage) and I'm satisfied with it.  I do have problems with double hits once in 
while, but have generally been able to solve them with technique.  I use Paslode
clipped head nails from Home Depot.  The sticks are too long to fit the opening 
the magazine so I just break them in half.  I have attempted to buy HF's nails,
just to see what they look like so I can better match them locally, but they are
always out of stock when I try.
