      A: Home depot we don't have a manards here in knoxville (yet) and the people at lowes seem to be bothered if you ask them a question or for assistance. We also don't have the sears tool store like they do in Indiana and Illnois ( father-in-law works there) in Indiana. So HD wins

        Up here in Traverse City we only have Home Depot and Sears. Home Depot is definately first and Sears second.

          It depends: for a speciric "toy," the favorite place would depend on what the toy was, but assuming you mean in general, HD by a wide margin, despite the fact that you have to wear gloves and change your clothes when you get home (apparently when they built the HD in Waltham, Massachusetts, they forgot to seal the concrete floor). However, there are some hand tools for which Sears is still a good place, but not too much to "browse."

          You didn't have Four Seasons Guns (Woburn, Massachusetts) as a choice.

            danomal,
            We'll probably end up using this as one of the front page surveys eventually.

            RGad,
            Are you into shooting? Last year I would have had to put Shooting and Reloading down as my favorite hobby. Havent been out a lot this year. Expensive sport

              All sports are expensive; shooting no more so than others (and a good deal less so than some).

              For many years I was very active as a competitive shooter, including National Match and what used to be called PPC (Revolvers). A match consisted of at least 150 rounds of reloaded .38 wadcutters (2.7 gr. Bullseye), and a practice was often as many as 500. So, in the great tradition of Tom Sawyer and the white-washed fence, one year I got my wife interested in helping me reload. (There is something mesmerizing about running a couple thousand rounds of brass through the sizer.) Lately my trips to the range have been limited to re-quals and giving some instruction.

              About 10 years ago we had a work party where we built a couple of hundred frames for the outdoor pistol range. Boy, do I wish I'd had my miter saw for that job!

                I did buy my Makita 14" gas powered concrete saw at Home Depot,and got them to go 10% below an internet price that I printed and brought in.

                I bought my Porter-Cable Sawzall at Lowe's($81.00),my Milwaukee large demo hammer at an online refurbishment center,and both of my new Bosch tools(hammer drill and demo hammer) on e-bay.

                        A. Professional wholesalers
                        B. Lowes, better selection and organization
                        C. Sears for hand tools only

                          HD in general, but WOODCRAFT for all the serious goodies.

                            It kind of hard to belive that I'm still getting replys to this post over 4 year after it was first put on this sight. I dont shop Lowes or Home Depot for major power tools any more. In fact most all my power and hand tools come for WoodCraft.
