Anyone know where to refill a paintball tank in/around NYC? I've been driving out to a Dick's Sporting goods outside the city because the Modell's and Sports Authority's in NYC don't fill them.

I think there is a liability insurance factor and probably a city ordinance about the storage of gases in the city. For on site filling of any tank, as far as I know, you'll have to go outside of city limits.

I live in Staten Island so it's easier for me to go to NJ.

Theres a place in Staten island i will try and get the addy. But the toll to cross the bridge will cost you probably as gas for the trip outside the city.

Need to verify that they will fill on site. If you have a tank you don't want to lose make sure it's not a swap only.

There use to be a paintball place pretty close to me but I'm not sure it's there anymore. Haven't seen any signs for it in a while but who knows it may still be there.
