3 and half inch nails?

I want to frame a shed in 6x2. I have a box of 3 inch nails. I presume these are ok? Would prefer 3 and half inch but they dont seem to be to easily available.

Thanks

thanks bullock, would 4" not be too long? For example you might have the point of the nail exiting when nailing king studs around doors or windows?
