I agree by local if its close. the last Milwaukee i bought was the M12 Rivet tool. #2550-20. I bought it at Farm and Fleet online and drove to the back dock to get it.My local hardware store (2 blocks from my home) is usually with 5% of online prices for Milwaukee tools. Sometimes they are even lower priced than the best I find online. They also understand the difference between homeowner and professional lines of tools. Sometimes it does not matter, it all depends upon if the tool is for occasional or everyday use.
The best thing about my local store is that they are there when I need them. I don't mind paying an extra $5 or $10 on a $150 tool once in a while to have "instant access" to all the hardware items I need from a business which has all those "odd things" you can only find at an old-time hardware store, I would hate to wait 2 days for, or pay shipping on a $2 hand full of bolts and nuts when I need them "now."
