Co2 Refills

My wife and I will be moving close to Harper's Ferry in the next 6 months. I was wandering where does everyone get there Co2 refills? If possible, I'd like to keep my 5lb tank.

well be like 45 minutes away when you move . Anyways most people go to Dicks to get refills but thats only for paintball canisters. If you have a 5lb cylinder that you can try the lfs to see if they do tank swaps which means they get your beautiful co2 cylinder for a not so beautiful looking one but hey you win some you lose some.

Co2 Refills

I use six litre co2 canister available from wine and spirit warehouses. They supply human consumption co2 to restaurants etc. U.K. Standard connection is the purple top. To stop dumping syndrome towards the end of the gas you must use a two stage regulator.
Cost s deposit usually and £18.00! It lasts a long time and local aquatic stores sell 1/2 l for this price.
