Default LHBS with kegs?

Anyone know of a LHBS in DFW that has used ball lock kegs? I'm tired of hunting for the best deal online to only find the S/H tries to bend me over the table.

Try craigslist. Just checked DFW quick and found 3 posted the other day for $60 each (ouch!). If you're patient you can probably score a few for a good price. If not throw up a WTB on craigslist and see what you come up with.

I scored two off of CL; but apparently seller's lately have not wanted to return my emails.

Well damn. After checking the suggested stores ($70 and $60) it might just be a wash for me to find them online once I pay for gas to go pick them up plus taxes.

There are three in Plano. However not cheap. $50 each.

MoreBeer sells them for $60 with free shipping:

Dallas Home Brew Store has them for $54 plus tax. So you will end up close to $60 with gas and time you spend to get it.

I found 2 of mine at a local boy scout garage sale. Paid $25 for two kegs, complete faucet and a drip tray.

That Plano guy hasn't responded to my email; MoreBeer and the Dallas Home Brew Store are about equal once I add gas to the equation. I'm coming up from the Granbury area so nothing is close for me.

I'm still keeping an eye out for a deal close/local; only problem was I have one beer in the keg and another kit coming that I want on tap. I have two kegs - no problem; except my wife wants a beer on tap too. Sooo I'm hunting a third keg. lol

Foreman's General Store in Colleyville has them every great now and then. It doesn't seem like a stocked item. I've just seen various kegs on the floor before and if they are out, they are for sale. You could always call and ask. It's a cool shop with home brew, gardening, BBQ, pet supplies and misc other stuff.
