Not weird at all especially for a mechanic. Both are fantastic tools unless you've used them you wouldn't believe how much time they can save you. The impact makes easy work of popping off automotive tires and driving large lag screws into wood. Using a regular grease gun sometimes requires three hands (two to pump it and one to hold nozzle on) You only need one hand for this gun and will usually easily grease even hard (impacted) fittings (easily 4 times faster and less messy)
I agree with the bald guy....these are awesome tools...you wouldn't believe it without seeing how easy it is to remove the toughest lug nuts with the impact wrench.
That being said, if you have no Milwaukee tools and want to get started, this is an odd way to do it.
If you already have 18v cordless tools from them, buying the bare tools is a better way to get...the grease gun is $150 and the impact is between $135 and $190 depending on model (Scamazon). That's what I did when I needed them.
