I did manage to get a keg during the Christmas sales; but since then I haven't picked up another. The biggest issue I tend to run into with kegs online is shipping and handling.

Update: Found one I should be picking up this Saturday. That takes care of the immediate need; but I guess I'll stay on the look out for any "good deals".

Try Keg Connection they are based in Commanche down by Dublin. Not a bad drive from Granbury.

But the price point is high once I add gas or shipping.

I did not know they were down there; I ride my motorcycle around that area quite a bit. Thanks for the info.

This seller quoted me $36 to ship two $33 ball lock cornies to Austin: http://www.ebay.com/itm/121041182842 Comes out to $51 each... Shipping is always the dealbreaker.

Amazing. He's actually come down on his price. I asked him about a bulk buy in Aug of last year, and he quoted $38 each for a pallet of 20 and $37.50 each for a pallet of 40. Freight threw the price to near $42 per keg. I was thinking about buying a bunch and selling on CL for a profit, but it's not worth the trouble.
