I've been able to cap twist offs with success.

Keep watching craigslist, sometimes I see people giving them away for free as well, or very cheap, just be patient.

Good lord, what are you going to do with 2700 bottles? I mean, they're reusable.

I would just go and buy some sixers of good beer. Problem solved and as a bonus, you are now drunk.

Many reasons not to use the twist off bottles not the lease of which is the danger of breakage when you are crimping the caps.
No, it will not be a twist off if you crimp a new top on it. You will always be better off using brown bottles as opposed to green or clear - search it.
On a side note you must live in beer hell if you don't have any pop tops available where you live.

Haha! I wont buy the 2700. And all we have here is corona, heineken and stalla artois that are not twists... All the imported are regulated by the government (SAQ) and they are like 20$ for a 6pack. No thanks!

Some of my favorite bottles are Sam Adams if you can get those, they aren't twist off, and the labels come off super easy. You other option would be to buy PET bottles of the internet, those are easy to use.
