I bought myself one of them shears like that, but never really used it. Most of the stuff I do now is so small it's more of a pain to dig that out than just cut it with snips (most of our stuff is 26 ga).
Definately handy when cutting thicker stuff though!
I think I seen a double cut version of that too recently.
