      I'd say about 10-15
      first few hits are small little taps to sink the tip of the nail into the surface, so that I don't have to hold it and risk accidentally hitting my fingers on the next few hits.
      The next few hits are slightly harder, to make sure it goes in straight. Then I hit it several more times to get it all the way sunk. Once it's all the way in, I pound the shit out of the head to make sure it's flat into the surface.

      >15 hits to hammer a nail

      After a few weekends of fencing work and bending a bunch of nails I've learned that pilot drilling larger nails is worth it. I can sink them in 4-5 hits either way but they deform even with perfect strikes. Wouldn't work for jolt head nails but regular profile where the first piece of wood doesn't need to grip as much, it's far better.

      Are the holes predrilled?

      >pilot holes for nails

      the state of this board

        > predrilled
        Obviously humor. I laughed. Surprised no one else had said it yet.

      And if I use nails and a hammer, it normally takes me about 5 nails and 11 swings before I get one nail in straight.

    As many as it has to.
    The goat is not to hammer it in as many/few hits as you can, but to do it right.
