10,000 staples is ridiculous
So I find a nice Senco stapler to add to my tool collection and there seems to be a minimum 10,000 to purchase, WOW. Where in the world can a guy pick up maybe a thousand or two staples?:laughing:

It is just a package deal to get the stapler cheap.

If you are a low use user, then it is not for you and you might be better off buying the stapler wherever you want and then buy the staples as needed.

You may try Harbor Freight, They sell nails for nail guns in lesser amounts
and they may sell staples that way as well. If not find a buddy or two with
staple guns and split the bill 2or more ways.

Depending on the stapler...

If your stapler is the type that would be used by framing crews to fasten sheathing to the walls of a house, then 10,000 staples go by amazingly quick. If it is a hobbyist type that might be used for woodworking, you may have better luck.

Most major cities have stores that cater to contractors, and carry just about every kind of air-driven fastener that you can imagine. There are a number of online retailers that specialize in air nails/staples as well.

You think that's ridiculous?

1.3 billion people using little sticks to eat rice with. That's ridiculous.

I don't find your comment funny at all, it's insulting and lacks respect for the methods used by Asian cultures (that happen to be very old).

You might also like to take a hard look at the North American lifestyle before it collapses in the next few years, you too may be eating small amounts of rice from a bowl!
