Kirby Cucumbers & Pickling

I'm interested in doing some pickling (NY deli Kosher style fermenting in brine).

I understand that this isn't the proper area for asking questions about Pickling, but does anybody know where I can find Kirbies? I live around Cleveland Circle (but can drive a couple of miles to a different grocery store)

I've found "small salad cucumbers" are these the same things? They seem to have warts (maybe not as much as Kirbies, not sure).

So far I made one batch that were good and a friend ate them up, but they were more full sour, not half-sour due to over fermentation (I think the heat earlier in the week sped up the process).

I'm looking forward to getting some Kirbies once the Coolidge Corner and new Allston Farmers Markets open up, but I'm looking for a retail regular source.
