Default Where does everyone find thier used kegs

I have been asking around locally and haven't gotten much of a response. Where have people found used kegs for sale to convert into Keggles? I check craigslist every day and have found any yet.

I walked around and found a house nearby that had AB 3 kegs sitting in the side of the yard. $100 later and they were in the back of my car.

I had one show up on my doorstep one day, shipped (at his cost and without telling me) by a fellow HBT member who had an extra. Legally procured, as well.

Sometimes, whining about "I can't find a keg ANYWHERE!" works!

Just throw a party and charge for cups. Free beer, and free keg shell

They are super expensive to ship. I was hoping for something local.
