What kind of nail gun can I use to attach baseboards to concrete?

I'm replacing the baseboards in my garage and the nails I've taken out go right through the drywall about an inch into the concrete.  No studs or furring strips.  They look like finishing nails, but will a normal finishing nail gun drive into concrete like that?  I have to drive 16 miles to rent a nail gun and I don't want to make two trips.

    A normal finishing nail won't penetrate concrete, no matter how you drive it. Either you don't have finishing nails, or  more likely, it isn't concrete you are nailing into. I have never seen a garage with baseboards.

    Update to comment: Your mom's basement is not a garage. Your comment would be meaningless even if you were not clueless.

    No a normal finish nail gun will not go in the concrete neatly.
