Matching paint?

I've heard of people getting small quantities of paint computer matched. Are you getting this at big box stores? What kind of costs?

Lowes/Home Depot, 3 bucks for a 7.7 ounce sample. The paint counter just needs a 1x1 inch flat square to get a reading.

I just bring in planes or parts of planes

Paint samples only comes in egg shell I think, so grab mat or gloss clear coat.

yes, you can only get "flats", but that is what you want anyway.
