Hobby shops and hardwares tend to get 3 flute taps... ( that includes Sears)
The disadvantage is that there is not much room for the material the tap cuts to escape. Consequently, you have a better chance of binding the tap up in the material and breaking it or binding the chips up and stripping the threads out with the tap.
