Coil nails for a Bostitch?

I recently purchased a Bostitch coil nailer, model N57C. Where would be the best place to buy the nails, from a large home improvement store (HD or Lowes)? I looked online but no one sells coil nails for that specific nailer. Should I just specify 1"-2 1/4", ,080" - .090"? I bought some roofing 1 1/4" roofing nails and found the won't work.
Can anyone help?

Isn't there a Bostitch warehouse, or something on the Northeast Expressway, somewhere around or north of Jimmy Carter? I don't go to Atlanta unless there are no alternatives, but I thought I saw one on my last trip.

Thanks Larry, I'll look into that. I was hoping to find one in Marietta but I may need to look elsewhere.

Like they always say, if you can't find it in Atlanta, it probably doesn't exist. It is just getting to it.

I checked HD this morning and they only had one size nail to fit my nailer. I decided to buy them.
My work takes me to several other HD's in the area so I will check them and see if other stores may stock different sizes.

Oddly enough, our local hardware store carries more varied types of nails than the Orange Big box in Blairsville, and a little cheaper. They employ one guy to repair our guns, too. Quite convenient.

What's the name and location of your hardware store? My son is getting married in Oct at Brasstown Resort and I work every now and then at the HD in Blairsville.

I sent you a PM. In the meantime I will see if he has the coil nails you need.
