I am considering purchasing a brad nailer and air compressor or a combo kit. I think an 18 gauge brad nailer will be sufficient for my needs right now but would like a compressor that I can use for bigger nailers/staplers in the future without having to upgrade. 99% of my projects are home improvement/DIY (shelving, bookcases, cabinets, molding, etc.). Any information regarding brand, style, pros/cons will be helpful. Thanks in advance for your help.

The little compressor you get with a brad nailer will drive any framing nailer on the market... but not at high speed rapid fire rates. You might have to let it pump up after 3 - 4 nails.

I just saw a three nail gun compressor combo at home depot for $299. You can not beat this deal. You get a brad nailer a finish nailer and a staple shooter, all the guns you will ever need for cabinets and finish work. Porter Cable was the brand and mine has served me well for over a year now.
