Simpson Strong Tie supplies 10d nails in 1-1/2" lengths along with a variety of
other nail sizes with shorter lengths (e.g. 16dx2-1/2", 8dx1-1/2", etc).   Make
sure you still get 12d minimum nail penetration otherwise you need to use the Cd
factor to reduce you capacity.

Does anyone know if you can get a 10d nail in 1.5" and 2.5" lengths instead
of the standard 3" length?
