I agree with the 'get the bulk tank' sentiment, merely for the cost and convenience factor. That is if you have space for it

Two things. One, yes, they couldn't fill my small tanks correctly if their lives depended on it. Two, CPPP removed all-day CO2 pricing and began charging $5 per fill regardless of tank size. Jungle has always charged per fill, SCV still has all-day pricing and fills tanks the right way.

I wouldn't call it dead, though. I get two 3.5oz tanks and a 9oz filled at Maxon the day before for something like $4 and generally wind up only using the 9oz (not even to depletion). I don't think it's dead until the pro shops aren't doing it...

And enjoy a fraction of the shots. My PPS guns have gotten nearly 100 shots per oz; I daresay that might be the entirety of an 8ci. My WALZ pirate won't even make it to velocity on HPA due to the shorter hammer spring of the Blue Streak trigger group.
