The most common cause of the gun not firing is loading it with the wrong staples. Look at the packaging for the staples and see if it lists the gun. Staples are NOT universal and are make for specific staple guns.

It "sounds like" it is jammed. You may have to pull out the staple with needle nosed pliers. e`1

Some have a small square piece on the tail end that must be manipulated and will some out for the reloading process.
If you will show the stapler to a bunch of people, I'm pretty sure someone will show you the drill.
God bless your efforts.

Go to your local Lowe's, Home Depot, Ace, or any other hardware/home store... in the nail/fasteners aisle.

Many staple manufacturers make them, sold by box of 1,000 and up. Just check what number gun they fit.

(example: box states "fits no. 800, 900 and 1000 staple guns.)

As long as "1000" is part of the list, they'll fit.
