If you did the simple search you would find that some staple guns will shoot brads but the crown size is about the staple the gun will shoot.

The trick is not to do more work in finding the answer than the OP is willing to do.

I didn't think the idea of a thing called a nailing schedule is so radical. My bad!
I think the answer could have been closer the yes or no, if we are just answering post one.

I use wide crown staples for comp. shingles and "-20 stucco lath.

I use narrow crown staples for assembling internal cabinet assemblies.

I use narrow crown nails for interior mouldings and pin nailers for cabinet trim.

I also have never seen or heard of a narrow crown brad. 18g finish should hold door stop sufficiently. I wouldn't recommend 23g pin nailers but it seems Gary had good luck.
