Attaching the Quarter Round

Hi,
Trying to attach a Quarter round for my laminate flooring but have been unsuccessful so far. I am using a manual (spring enabled) staple/nail gun and 5/8" finishing nails. Can't get the right angles and the nails fully through the quarter round and into the baseboard.
Is there a better way to do this? I was wanting to avoid buying a electric nail gun considering it's fairly expensive.

Thanks all!

My guess is your nails are too short. IMHO, A pneumatic brad nailer would work best. But if you don't have a compressor, thats not much of an option. I decided to remove the baseboards instead of adding 1/4 round. We used 2" brads to replace the baseboards.

I couldn't imagine nailing on quarter round [or shoe mould] with anything less than a 2" nail. A cheaper alternative would be to predrill the quarter round and then use a hammer and nail set with 6 penny finish nails.
