    I think there is a big difference between household and professional use. My ryobi tools have been great for household use, but I doubt they would last a year in a professional setting. I'd love to buy nothing but high end tools but realistically the ryobi stuff has been more than adequate at a fraction of the cost

    I don't frequent pawn shops, but from what I've seen the prices are stupid. Like almost full retail stupid.

    I've looked but the shops near me either don't have them or they want damn near as much as new.

    I don't mind spending the money for quality when needed. I refuse to buy wrenches, sockets or screw drivers that are not snap-on, Matco, or maybe Blue point. But for the price of one high end cordless drill I can buy two or three ryobi tools that do everything I need.

    Other power tools like saws I won't buy inexpensive because I can tell a difference between ryobi and say a dewalt.

    I carry the items to the front and ask for the cash price, the owners will give a good deal and usually make change from what they have in their pocket... I've never seen my cash hit the register or gotten a receipt. Gotten some pretty killer deals on deer stands and chain saws, up to $100 or 50% off the sticker.
