I have never had success with that, and even buying a new pop rivet gun didn't make the old one appear yet. That almost ALWAYS works, but not this time.When I can't find what I'm actually looking for, I trick myself into looking for something else. Then, and only then, the items I was looking for turns up, right infront of my nose. Would never find it otherwise.
Need a Philips? Look for a flathead instead, the philips is bound to turn up first! But only if you truly believe you're actually looking for a flathead.
