Yes from him above, or Local Bike Shop, or online shops such as CRC. There are a few style.
Mates and Local Bike Shops may even just give you them as they come as spares with modern mechs.

Yeah just go in your lbs. Modern mechs generally come in the largest size with two sets of shims for the smaller sizes. You lbs should therefore have loads kicking around.
