CO2 fills in Jersey City?

I'm moving to NJ next weekend, and I'm going to be running out of CO2 any day now. Does anyone know of anywhere near downtown JC that does fills?

Ah, I'm a paintball player, probably why I didn't think about going to a proshop to get a fill, I figured they'd gouge the hell out of me even though I'm only looking for 2.5lbs of co2

Haha. I haven't really done it in a long time, but I'm pretty sure Wal-Mart will also do it for you. The only tanks they'd give you crap about would probably be the like 4" long ones.

Moving to NJ huh? I used to live in Bayonne before I moved out to Scotch Plains. There used to be a Welding shop called Airdyne on Rt 440 right near city line, between Kennedy Blvd and 440.

You might want to check them out.
I think this is them:
CGI Industries, Inc.
431 Danforth St.
Jersey City, NJ 07305
Phone: 201-434-0770
Fax: 201-434-5148

You might want to try these folks and just ask if they know anyone who fills in JC.
FSA, Inc.
555 Summit Ave.
Jersey City, NJ, 07306
Tel. (201) 963-4030

I'm working in JC right now, next to the Pavonia Newport Mall. Are there any good LFS that I can get to with the light rail?

taz, there is a store on the corner of newark and jersey avenues which is maybe a 15 minute walk from the mall, the store is crowded but they have lots and lots of fish in there. It's called tropical something or other, I forget the exact name.

Thanks, I'll have to take a look when it's not pouring out.

Hm, Paintballistix Enterprise's phone is disconnected, that isn't a good sign

Does anyone happen to know of anywhere for sure that does fills here in downtown JC?

Hm, I am 0 for 3 on those paintball stores. One is out of biz, and the other two are the same and only warehouses
