CO2 and compressed air are not the same. Copressed air runs out quickly where CO2 will last what seems like forever. CO2 is what it says carbon dioxide and has a wide range of uses in the modern world. From pellet guns to soda machines and others that escape me. Powertanks is probably the best on the market and the people I know that bought there systems use Powertanks. They are good but pricey. Like I said earlier poor boys have poor ways. I built mine out of a bottle I found laying in a snow drift. It is whats refered to as a 20 lb bottle. I had our gas supplier at work fill it. Built a bracket to hold it secure but can be unstrapped to carry it where it is needed and bought a fixed regulator from Polly Performance. It was less than 75.00 plus some labor. It gets used every trip out for something and will last over a year.
