Robert,

I called around town when I got mine and everyone was quoting me $100 for a 20 lb tank. So I went ahead and got one on EBay. Then I learned the fire extinguisher shop trick. I could have picked one up there for around $20.

And there is a draw back to the way I did mine. Unless you are willing to do some driving and know where to go to get all the "little parts" you will drive yourself nuts.

What is the "fire extinguisher shop trick?"

Normally the cheapest place to buy a CO2 tank is a shop that services fire extinguishers. They have a large variety of sizes available and will almost always have the cheapest prices.
