Where to get CO2 Tank Refills in Colorado


I was thinking of getting a pressurized CO2 setup for my 20 gallon long tank and before I go out and buy anything I was wondering if any Coloradans know where I can get CO2 tank refills in the Lakewood/Denver area. I don't want to buy a tank and not have a place to refill it once it gets empty.

Also are there any stores in Colorado that you know of that provide a good. not way to expensive pressurized CO2 system?

How much would it cost to refill a 5lb tank? And do you know if they sell any co2 tanks or not?

I think it was about $14 for a 20# tank so it should be less than that. I don't know if they sell tanks or not. You could call and ask.

Sounds like a good deal then. I'll jsut call and check it out sometime.

Another Question:

What is a good Regulator that I should buy for this pressurized CO2 setup? Id preferably want it to cost under $100

There's a GenAir in Longmont, and an Airgas in Fort Collins, but I havn't called to find out if they'll do it. Jax in Fort Collins used to fill up paintball tanks, so they may do larger ones as well.
