Where do you guys get your welding stuff at?

I've been to several Harbor Freights, Atwoods, and Tractor Supply with no luck. I'm looking for some mig wire and a bottle for gas.

HalfFastFord gets his stuff at AirGas.

edit: I did buy a small bottle for mix gas at Tractor Supply for a little 110v welder.

You must not be looking hard enough, Tractor Supply in Moore sells plenty of mig wire and they can supply you with an exchange bottle. The bottle is very pricey upfront but you ultimatly own it. The nice thing is they are conveinent, if you run out of gas on a Sunday morning you can run up there and exchange it. Can't do that at a welding shop, but at AIrgas and the likes you can just lease a bottle, much cheaper up front, just not as convenient.

Well damn. I was in that exact store a few weeks ago and I couldn't find anything. I'll go back there this week and get that bottle and some wire. IIRC their bottles were like $100 weren't they?

It just so happens I had to exercise my right to buy welding gas today, Sunday and Tractor Supply was there to assist.

45.00 plus tax for a #4 bottle, which is pretty good size.
