Default Building a small closet.....

I'm framing a new closet in downstairs bonus room. It's on a concrete slab. What is the best way to fasten the bottom plate to the concrete slab for the walls of the closet?

Welcome Cocean:
I would drill holes in the concrete floor with a masonry bit and use plastic anchors and 3" screws. A bead of liquid nails or other construction adhesive would help also.
There is a Powder acutated nailer that works well but is noisy and dangerous to use.
