Question 9oz or 12oz?

I'm trying to decide between getting a 9oz or a 12oz tank. I dont want to use remote and these size tanks seem small enough to fit comfortabley on the gun. Is there a big weight diff between the two? or is one much bigger than the other? and finally which would you reccomend? thanks.

get a 16 oz. They are very very small and compact and they give a nice number of shots.

Brands?

How many shots are the 16oz's good for? and would it be better to get two 9oz's or one 16oz? and do brands matter much?

go with the bigger tank, even a 20 oz tank, u get used to, and if its too big, then u can always get a drop-forward, retailing for like $15-30 usually. it would get too expensive to fill two 9 oz tanks every time, u get more for your money in the long run with a bigger tank. if u dont want a 20 oz, then you should go with the 16 oz, or the 12 if the 16oz is still a little too uncomfortable. but go for the 20, if its too big, then go for a 16oz

I have a 16oz co2 tank that is called ' stubby ', which just means that it is wider instead of longer...

Then i saw on ebay ' The True Stubby '. My God was it small.. it was shorter than the regular stubby 16oz! It would be perfect if they would have made it the same lengh as the 16oz, and made it a 20oz. That would have been sweet.

MY question is, do they make 20oz co2 tanks that are rounded at the end like a 16oz? (And preferablly teh same length as the 16ozs only wider?)

Anyone know? And if they don't, why not?

I really like the 20oz, but i hate the square end to it and its a little too long.

as far as i know, they do not have one. but, they could that im not aware of, maybe u could check with the major co2 tank companys (like pure energy, etc.) and ask them. if they dont have it, try suggesting it, its worth a shot

trust me, its just beacuse that weight is centered and not drawn out like a 20 oz tank.
