Default gun screws at True Value store

I was at the local True Value store yesterday and saw in the hardware section that they have drawers with various individual nuts, bolts, screws for sale. I was surprised to see a couple of the drawers labeled "GUN SCREWS". I didn't have a lot of time to look at them, but they had the oval head screws used on Weaver scope mounts as well as 4-40, 6-40, and 8-40 screws normally used only on guns.

I don't know if Lowe's, Home Depot, or any other big store has a selection like this in their hardware section, never thought to look there, but knowing they are available in a local store sure would have saved the day on numerous occasions in the past.

I used to work at Ace, some have started carrying gun screws, the one by me keeps them under lock and not because they might get stolen, people will pick up a screw out of their bin, look at it and then just toss it back not necessarily where they got it, whenever it slowed we would go back to the screw section and try to make them right again, was a pain.
If you don't see the gun screw box you might want to ask, they may be in a cage somewhere, big box stores around me won't carry small specialized screws.

"People in Arizona carry guns," said Detective David Ramer, a Chandler police spokesman. You better be careful about who you are picking on...
