They should. Dick's Sporting Goods should also.

Dick's in Metairie by Lakeside doesn't refill paintball tanks. The stores elsewhere do, but not that one

Niether Marse nor Fire Extinguisher & Supply Co seem to sell CO2 tanks. Any other suggestions before I look at ordering one online?

If you want paintball size tanks (20 oz), sell and fill at Gunfighter Pro Shop. Amazon sells 5lb tanks for a little under $70. If you have Prime membership, two day shipping is free. Another place to find 5lb tanks is Kegerator/beer dispenser supply.

I seem to be having trouble finding local places that carry 5-10 pound tanks. Its strange considering the maritime industry we have around here.

Best place to get co2 tanks is on craigslist, theres usually a few for sale. I got a 20# tank for 30 bucks. Very good condition. Then I got it filled at the fire extinguisher manufacturer place in Baton Rouge, a buck per pound.

Found this in your area:

http://neworleans.craigslist.org/for/3982625035.html

Also this:

These tank really aren't that big as far as size is concerned. Get the biggest tank you can and set it/ forget it for 2 years
