generally you get them filled at paintball sites but it's kind of hard to get these days since most people use compressed air instead but im sure some sites will still run C02 along side air.

yea, Co2 is almost a thing of the past thesedays, unless they run pump tournies at some sites or old mech semi markers which havn't moved with the times, which then they will have Co2.

you can get one here second hand for pretty cheap, have a look in the "for sale" section, there's usually a couple waiting to find a loving home. I'd probably advise looking for a 4500psi 1.1L size tank. They cost a bit more but you'll get more out of it per fill . Everywhere i seem to look charges the same to refill a 0.8Litre as 1.1Litre, so it makes sense in the long run

well for us we do anyway. Cheltenham's not renown for it's paintball facilities, so it's kind of hard to run a university team there, so we have to go to Dive90 (diving store) to have our tanks filled... :/
