Check airgas on 2305 Kamehameha Hwy. Their prices aren't that bad

they do an over night fill, but for an extra charge they will fill right there.

Be sure that you ask for food grade CO2 not the industrial it is a lower quality gas with lots of various inert gasses. They won't do anything bad, but better safe than sorry.

If you need a qick fill there is a paint ball shop off of nimitz hwy. I don't how much they charge but it is worth a look if you don't like airgas
