Around me the empties from the LHBS or twist off's with beer already in them is much cheaper than alot of the pry-off's with beer in them....boy do I have a lot invested in bottles.

When I needed bottles, I hosted a poker night and fed everyone, but there was one condition: everybody had to bring beer with pop-off caps. It worked great, had fun playing cards and got all the bottles I needed. One side note is depending on what style capper you have make sure, before bottling day, that the bottles will work with it. I have a "winged style capper" not a pull down and had trouble with some bottles.
