Default Re-using caps?

Have a batch i'd like to bottle today but am short a few caps, can i reuse caps that have been crimped already? The ones i'd use are not bent up. My lhbs isn't open today so should bottle or wait till the weekend?

its already thurdsay, so wait, beer is usually ok for a couple days.

Since you're only a few caps short of a batch, do you have some bigger 16-24oz bottles you can use to get the # of bottles that need to be capped down?
