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...

I can see the writing on the wall for it.

We are likely going to go HPA only for Norwich's field, just to much hassle to get CO2 to the field without and motorized traffic allowed near it.

Most of the outlaw play around here is still CO2 and CO2 is still easier to find in VT than HPA.

Pretty much dead here. Field fill it, but the bellwether is the shift rentals from CO2 to HPA. I actually welcome that, as it means less hot shots from the rentals spiking...some of which inevitably seem to hit me from behind.

Wow, that's ridiculous. I always prefer to pre fill if I can, must to make the start of the day easier, CO2 or hpa.
Do they charge for air?

We normally get a 50 lbs tank and fill our own when we play. We can go threw most of it as well in one day. I know our last game this year, we were down to our last 5 9oz tanks before we finished up for the day. This year we are thinking of getting 3 50 lbs tanks ($30 a tank) at one shot and using those for the first half of the season. And remember, nothing gets a nice full fill vs putting your empty tanks in the freezer over night.
