Kegging Store Bought Beer?

Did it once to tie me over until I filled more kegs with home brew. Bought two cartons of Oettinger pils in 500mL cans and filled a 19L keg with them. It worked fine, but I haven't done it since. It does tend to flatten the beer a bit so it needs to be topped up with gas. 

The only thing I'd be wary about is oxygen ingress from pouring the beer into the keg. If you drink it quickly it's probably gonna be fine like mine was but you probably wouldn't want to let it sit for any length of time.
