yeah i had to go the paintball route also.
In my location it can take almost a 30 min drive to go to a beer store and get a real tank filled.
Paintball store 10min. away will fill any paintball canister for 5 dollars regardless of size as long as its a paintball canister.
And whats funny is a 20oz canister cost 5 dollars... if i take my 5lb tank inside, they charge 5 dollars / lb...
ummm so i end up taking 4 20oz canisters with me instead fill up 4 bottles and dont go back unless i do something stupid with CO2.
and guys theres a guy in our sponsored forum whose selling a complete setup.
all you need is the line diffuser and paintball tank.
For those of you guys who want to know more, an expensive store will sell a 20oz paintball tank filled for roughly 29-35 dollars.
You can get a empty tank online for around 15-20 dollars.... and then take the tank and get it filled. The choice is yours.
The only thing i regret in a small setup tho, is the missing timer solinoid so it shuts off automatically for you.
But if ur the type who leaves co2 on all the time, the paintball route is a no brainer... because there is a TON more paintball stores who can recharge your tank more so then beer stores.
