Hey, sorry I'm kinda brand new here, actually made an account after reading through this and other forums and buying one of these kits, I ended up buying 10 or so small cartridges for around $1 a piece off of amazon, but I also found out you can use a large Co2 tank, such as the ones use for paintball guns. They only cost about $5 to fill up a large one (about 20oz.) The tanks themselves can usually run about $20-30 and you can actually buy a thread adapter that has a small male end that will thread right in (same size as the Co2 cartridges) and a female end that will fit the large Co2 tanks. So far the cheapest I've found runs about $20, it's usually called a BB Gun Air Tank Adapter, here's a link to it if any of you are interested I'll be ordering one and switching over as soon as I run out of little Co2 canisters

You can always toss some cig filter in the tubing for a temporary diffuser.
