Title: RE: perforated gypsum shearwall

I bet the subcontractor bid it with the right nails and spacing though.

I have yet to see any body follow the nailing schedule on gypsum shear
wall.  Generally, the drywall sub-contractor would put the drywall and if
you think the guy is reading structural plans, dream on.  During my
forensic tenure, I hardly ever encounterd any gypboard shear wall to have
the proper nailing or even the proper nail size and spacing.
