Dumb Question

Sorry for the dumb question guys...

Are 12grams Co2 cartridge a one time used thing?..When they empty out, you just toss them? Do you keep buying new ones?

Yep, once they are pierced they are done for. Buy new ones and toss the empties.

they have their target users, but yes they are pretty cheap. You can get 100 for $60 on Amazon, so $0.60 a piece

You can buy them in bulk fairly cheaply.

It's not like you will use thousand of them a month.

Not bad, I guess. How many shots can you get out of them?

It's not like your going to hold a lane with a pump/pistol. You take shots when you know you can hit them..

I get 35 out of a 12 gram and only use them if there aren't many walk on's. If I think I will shoot more than 100 balls a game i switch to a 3.5 oz tank
