I agree with you, since everyone else says what you are saying, but the last
email said  two by two, and that would not be used at a stud most of the
time.

If you want to use the Kreg jig you can do want ever you want.  I certainly
wouldn't use it for anything more than to setup and stabilize the wall.
When you consider the amount of wood you must remove to bury the screw head
in the receiving 2x you don't leave much wood to guard against sideways
movement.  In other words a wall must stand against movement in multiple
directions.  The sheer strength of the 2x is less when you remove all that
wood for the screw head.  If you want to use 3 inch screws by themselves
that would be much stronger.

I think you can use the Kreg jig on your 2X2 if you so desire.  It's just
that, with it's 15 degree preset, you will probably not get a heavy enough
screw, or long enough in there.

I don't know off the top of my head, but what is the recommended screw
length for the Kreg jig going from a 2X into a 2X?
