As above, yeah, if you're looking for a home setup, a small compressor and accoutrements is a better choice. A PB tank just doesn't last all that long- I know I got longer than eight minutes, but then, you're not constantly blowing air when painting.

I suppose if you're looking for some way to airbrush "on the go" for some reason, you could find a big 114 ci 4500 and get a little more life...

Though on the same vein, I have seen artists use SCUBA tanks, especially if they live in an apartment or somesuch, where even a small, relatively quiet oilless compressor could make too much noise. It's not cheap nor convenient, but if there's no other option...
