Default Advice on what I should use to hang up a picture on the wall

It's a standard wall construction and I need to hang a picture frame. I will be using a standard picture hanger that you nail into the drywall. My question is what type of hammer I should use? What is recommended?

30 LB sledge works pretty good too. Especially on the drywall!

The answer is obviously to use a standard one, as everything else is standard. You would use a metric one if you had bought your drywall at Home Depot, but that's not the case, is it. No, it's not.
