Air compressor

Hello, Im not sure if this is the right spot for this or not. BUt where do I buy an air compressor to fill a 45/4500 or any tank for that matter. I don't want to buy a top of the line one, just something to put in the garage.

just look for pb places that sell field gear, not actionvillage or anything like that, but you get the idea.
just an fyi, its a butt load of $$$ for a compressor that size. we are talking thousands.

You don't want a compressor. You'd need the compressor, and if you really want 4.5k fills most likely a booster. New setups are around 8-10k I believe, you can get them used anywhere between 2-5k.

...Instead, get a 80cu scuba tank. All you need is that and a fill station which you can get on eBay for like 40 bucks shipped and you'll have at least 20 decent fills. Keep in mind most scuba tanks only fill to 3k, so that's all you're gonna get. I got my scuba tank for 60 bucks, fill station for 40. Some paintball shops and (obviously) all scuba shops will fill up the tank for like 5 bucks.

They'll probably charge around 200 for the tank, because they'll only have brand new ones. You won't find the fill station there either, you can really only get those online.

Ok, so I'll probably go to my local scuba shop soon, I'll just ask for a 3000psi scuba tank. Could you point me in the right direction as far as a fill station?
