guitarguy, just think about it for a second...

if u shot the same projectile (a paintball) out of the same gun @ 300 fps with CO2, Compressed Air, or any other propellant for that matter, why would one go farther than the other or hurt anymore if they all leave the barrel of the gun @ the same speed - 300 fps?

because compressed air tanks have regulators, Co2's dont.

does it suck to find out you just wasted $50 for nothing?

google it dude - difference b/w compressed air and CO2:

1. CO2 - Most commonly used air source because it is cheap to buy tanks and cheap to fill. New CO2 tanks generally cost approximately $15 for a 9oz, $17 for a 12oz, $19 for a 16oz, and $23 for a 20oz. The more ounces of CO2 a tank can hold, the more shots you will get per fill. One of the disadvantages of using CO2 is that it is actually in super-cold liquid form while in your tank. Only a fraction of the CO2 is in gas form at any given time. When you fire, the gas is drawn into your marker. When you continue to fire at a high rate, the tank gets colder and colder until the liquid does not have enough time to change to a gas, and you will experience damage or a freeze-up. Freeze-ups cause your marker to malfunction for about 15 seconds. It can easily damage most markers, with the exceptions of spyders, piranhas, and tippmanns. Dick's Sporting Goods fills 20oz tanks for about $5.

2. HPA/Nitrogen - Very common among tournament players. Both gases are very consistent, causing greater overall accuracy. No matter how fast you shoot, most quality HPA/Nitrogen tanks will maintain a steady input pressure for your marker. HPA/Nitrogen do not cause freeze-ups, so they are considered much cleaner gases. They are always in gas form as far as paintball is concerned. HPA/Nitrogen tanks come in two different pressure settings. 3000psi, the lower of the two, is most common and normally costs about $90 less (cost of tank) than the other. 4500psi, the one commonly found in competition-level players, allows for more shots per fill. A 72 cubic inch (ci) 4500psi system will almost always yield more shots per fill than a 72ci 3000psi system.

CO2 outputs around 800 PSI.

your compressed air tank holds 3000 PSI, but the regulator regulates it down to 800 before it goes into the gun, so its the same thing as the CO2, both output 800 psi.

and I hope you have been using the chrono lately. because it doesn't sound like you do.

are you smoking crack, cocaine, pot, etc.? Seriously, shoot yourself, please. HIGH PRESSURE AIR TANKS MAY OUTPUT 600-800 PSI. A LOW PRESSURE TANK (MOST COMMONLY USED TANK) OUTPUTS BETWEEN 400 AND 450 PSI. most orings on most guns would blow right when air began flowing at 800 psi. now, please go play with ur plastic ion.

wtf????????????????? its 800-850 PSI BUDDY. get your **** right before you correct me again

LP tanks arn't the most commonly used tanks either, everyone wants HP at this point, go do some more researching before u try this again.

.. HP tanks operate 800 PSI, once that 800 PSI reaches the regulator on the gun, it gets regulated to LP. you don't even know what you are saying man lol. chill and just go to sleep.

i'll make a chart just for you cutie.

800 PSI -> ION Regulator regulates it down -> 180 PSI into the gun.

if 800 PSI would pop o-rings, then why the hell would a spyder even work? spyders operate at 800-850 PSI.

there we go dumb****. the only problem, is that on good guns with good regs, the pressure can reach too high, and it cant regulate it down enough. i.e. pm's and dm's opperate around 75 psi. if your reg has to go from 800 psi to 75 psi in milliseconds, its gonna put a lot of stress on ur reg. eventually itll **** your reg and your reg wont recharge fast enough. e-pwned. good night. i actually have a life and dont spend it on the computer or pbnation 24/7.

no wonder you don't know what you are talking about.

there are alot of DM and Pm's using HP tanks working fine, the only gun that can't regulate 800 PSI is the Angels.
