My local home brew store sells pony kegs for $40 a piece ... I'm not impressed with this price at all.
I'm not impressed with your LHBS - $54.95 before tax and shipping. I did just fine at $46 to my door.

In NC you can get them for $15 a piece...I had offered to get some for members here before and never got any replies. I will be getting 10 more next week for $150. Those "Deals" are not great deals as the guys selling them pay less then $5. The guy I get them from gets them for free from bottling plants but it costs about $5 each to ship them here (trailer full). He then sends most of them overseas. He always had a lot full of them but not so much any more. Last time I talked to him he said there were less then 150,000 left in North America and most are in Canada.
