All of my suppliers (of upholstery supplies) sell any length staple for BEA guns in regular and stainless. I keep six or seven different lengths around at all times. Some have boxes as small as 1000 staples. They also sell Bostitch, Duo-Fast, Senco, and Fasco staples the same way. It's just like buying top and trim contact adhesive, or sew foam. You can't buy upholstery supplies at a Home Depot, you need to find an upholstery supply house.
