I gotta go buy a 9/16 impact socket.

On the day before Christmas.

I'd sooner gouge my nads off with a spoon.

I hate crowds of people. Pushing, shoving rude Christmas shoppers are an order of magnitude worse.

Just risk using a regular socket. What do you have to lose? If it breaks, than you can buy an impact and a regular socket, but the crowds and fuss will be the same for buying two sockets as it is for one.

I use regular sockets on an impact wrench quite often, because I'm too lazy to get up and go to the tool box when a regular socket in the right size is laying right next to me. (especially if I'm already under a vehicle.) In 30 years, I've only gotten burned a few times.

Yeah, this is a deep well, and there is too much twist in a regular socket.

My condolences.
From personal experience yesterday, it's a mad house out there.

Merry Christmas Mr. B.

Thanks for keeping my narrow ass in line.
I do appreciate it.
