Where to fill CO2 in Huntsville?

Just ordered a 5lb CO2 cylinder. It should be here hopefully by the end of the week. Does anyone know a good place in Huntsville, AL to get it filled? I'm moving up from a 20oz paintball tank, so I'm not quite sure how to go about getting the larger cylinders filled.

This is more general advice than specific to your area, but try to find a home brew store. I think most of them have the ability to fill CO2 tanks. If not, they will definitely know where to go.

I hate to say it but you shouldnt have bought the tank --I to made the same mistake when i started tankin--Most beer distributers have filled co2 tanks that you trade in for 20 bucks at first you pay a deposit then you just keep exchanging when you need a new one
But you can try a welding shop

Can you give an example of this? I'm in Huntsville looking to buy a 5lb tank but if there's a $20 alternative near me...

Look for a place that fills fire extinguishers. I have one near me that I bring a tank to and they fill it.

Fire extinguisher companies are a good source. I found one about 2-3 miles from my apartment that will fill, not exchange.
