Keep trying the LHBS. I went to mine and they are normally around $60. I asked the guy and he said "well, we have a pallet over here of kegs that we are selling for $30 each. Take a look and let me know. All reconditioned and holding pressure".

So I went over, they dont have the black plastic tops on them, just a cheap aluminum handle on top. But all were holding pressure with new seals. I took 2 of them (should have bought a lot more) and he gave them to me for $25 each. So, I scored. But keep tryin' and try craigslist also.

Yea, I frequent craigslist but I'll ask the lhbs to see if they ever sell them.
Do you use the ball lock kegs or the pin lock kind? Is there a benefit to using either kind? I'm going to have to start researching what kind of equipment is the best. I'd rather buy once instead of cheap and often. Thanks again for the help!

I am using ball lock kegs. They are a lot more common than pin lock, and parts seem easier to find for them. There really isnt an advantage of one over the other. Its pretty much the exact same keg, just different connections on top. Take a look at this link, it helps explain the kegs and is very informative.
