PC Load Letter? What the fuck does that mean?

For an early birthday present from my parents I got a used 30 gallon 5hp 150psi Craftsman air compressor. It was $165 with a bad mother fucker 25 foot hose.

After I got it I went to visit my cousin's husband who runs a pawn shop and got a Snap-On IM6100 half inch drive impact gun for $50 to use with the new compressor.

Then my friend sold me Mac 1/4 inch drive and 3/8 inch drive air ratchets $50 for the pair.

I am STOKED and can't wait to tear some stubborn bolts apart with the POWER OF IMPACT RAAWR!!! Rear shocks on my dad's 1992 Accord are probably going to be the first project since I did the front shocks, brake pads and rotors, drive axles, wheel bearings and tie rod ends last weekend. That was a big job and I hope the idiot at Honda who decided on the hub-over-rotor design has been punished. At least I didn't break any tools getting the job done like Blaise did.

What is the difference between 12pt and 6pt sockets? I'm guessing 6pt would be less likely to round a nut and 12pt is easier to slip on a nut. There doesn't seem to be much of a difference in price.
There are some bolts that are 12-point. The bolts that hold the wheel bearing to the steering knuckle in a 90-93 Accord spring to mind.

Also, a 12-point socket can be used to drive bits that are 4-sided. I used a 12-point socket with an easy-out bit that was 4-sided.
