Your reason above is why air guns are a menace.
I have had at least three locking wheel nuts mullered by twats who take no notice of a simple instruction NOT to use an air gun on them.
The trouble is,that over time the use of airguns stresses the nut,and eventually they just disintegrate,usually when you're trying to change wheels,or have a breakdown due to a puncture.
McGards are the worst,had two of those where the head has come completely off!
