Roll Pin Holder and Punch Needed

Is there any place in/near Arlington that sells roll pin holder/starters and punches? I'm building two lowers this weekend and this time I would like to have the right tools to do it. (1/16th" right?)

I have never seen them at Academy/ Dicks, and wouldn't think a Lowes/Home Depot would have them (although I haven't looked there).

I would have liked to do this at the the build party but my parts are getting here too late (today) and I couldn't get off work anyway.

My best guess was CTD and I am trying to avoid driving out there but I may just end up doing it anyway. Any help is appreciated.

CTD would have them. Just make sure to go to the Catalog counter...it's usually cheaper. Maybe pull out the phone book and start calling local shops and FFLs to see what they might have.

If you will meet us up in Arlington tomorrow at Hooters or Alpine I can pick up the punch kit from Cheaper Than Dirt for you when I drive past there. If they don't have them you can borrow my stuff as long as we set up a way to get it back to me.

Thanks for the offer Sonic but I am at work till 6, I would be pissed about my job getting in the way of all my gun building/shooting plans but im just grateful to have one. If I didn't I would be out there with you guys though.

Im gong to look at the local stores, but I have never been to CTD so it would be fun to go up there anyway. I am worried that I am going to be spending a lot more money than originally planned though...
