So this is what i found and it worked for me.

If you have an impulse that is firing erratically, it is probably the switch mounted on the head of the toolthat plugs into the fan circuit board. I have both framers and trimmersthat have had this problem and would like to find a good source for theswitches. My oldest has been used almost daily since 1996 and thisswitch is the only problem I have had , keep your tool clean. hopethis helps......

When you say cleaned did you replace the o rings? and lubricate them. on the framing nailer there are 2 push rods in the area where the fan is, are they in place and move freely, they push the door up where the fuel cell is to load fresh fuel, check these and the stem that is in the head is it in correctly with the open portion facing up? Check the expiration date on the fuel cell it is on the bottom, an out of date cell will give you fits also. When you depress the safety to fire and release it after the nail does it move freely or hang up. These are all thoughts that you might look for. Check them out and if you still have trouble give me the exact model number and other symptoms.

Nail gun wont shoot

When you say it turns on - I'm assuming you mean the fan runs when you depress the nose? If the fan does not run - the problem is most likely the head switch which is part of the circuit assy in this tool.
Part # 22
If the fan runs but it doesn't shoot - first - Check your fuel! I have seen many times where someone forgot to activate the fuel before installing it. On the bottom of each cell is a date code stamp - if it is within date, press the nozzle of the cell against a solid surface (bench etc) and you should get a good burst of fuel - if not replace the fuel.
Lastly, If the tool is clean, the fan runs, and the fuel is good but it still won't fire it is one of 3 things: a bad spark plug / wire (uncommon), a bad trigger switch (which is also part of part #22 circuit assy), or a bad ESU (electronic spark unit).
If the basic things don't solve your problem, I would suggest bringing it to a qualified repair shop to diagnose because the parts are expensive to play duck duck goose with.

What are the best chokes to use for a beginner on clay pigeon shooting?

To increase your odds of hitting targets - use the most "open" choke that will maintain good density at the distance you're shooting - exactly the same as most experienced shooters do... Skeet choke for shooting Skeet, Mod to Full for Trap, Cyl to Light Mod will handle 95% of shots on the sporting clays courses around here.

To increase your skill - occasionally use your full choke for everything until you learn proper gun mount, swing, and lead and follow through. When you start getting frustrated, switch back to the open chokes to get a little positive feedback on some close targets, then move back to the full choke.

I bought a new mossberg 590 a1 shot gun a month ago, I love the gun but its having a couple of problems, the first problem is that when shooting every once in a while i get sprayed in the face with exuast...

Personally, with that many problems, I'd call Mossberg and get a return authorization. None of these things should be happening, especially with a new gun.

After about an hour of play with the pulse r76 it will stop shooting and only make a distinctive click. I charge the battery, use my friends battery who has the same gun but the gun still wont shoot. Then...

If you charge the battery for more than five hours or over night, you'll burn out the battery. When your done playing with the gun dont put it on the charger immediatly as this will overheat the battery. Wait about an hour for the bettery to cool and then put it on the charger. It should work fine after that.

It has been so long since i used my spray gun i foregot what each knob is for

The knob on the left of the gun is your fan adjustment. turn it back towards you and it will shoot a stream of paint, turn it forward and it will shoot in a fan patter. The knob at the bottom by the air inlet is your air pressure adjustment. The knob on the back is to remove the needle and spring.
