Thanks for the advice, I followed everyone's suggestions and still did not get the pins out. I did however bend 2 punches and flatten out a third! These pins are a pain in the a$$. Again I wanted to say thanks for all f the advice and for the timely responses. It is great to have a place to go to when you really need some help and get the correct answers.

As mentioned, make sure you are placing the FSB against something solid, then go with the largest punch you can find that will fit the head of the pin. Smack that sucker with a firm swing. Once you get the thicker side out it should be easier to get the rest out.
That sucks that it's taking so much effort. When I removed my RRA FSB pins they came out without much fuss.
