48/3000 for first tank?

So I haven't played paintball in while until about a week ago, and I am tired of borrowing the field hpa tanks. I am currently looking at buying a Guerrilla 48/3000 tank for my azodin kaos, and I was wondering if this is a good choice. I'm also trying to upgrade to an empire axe in the near future, so I would like my own tank for that. Main reason I'm going with the guerilla is because it's a lot cheaper than a ninja tank, and I would rather not buy used. Is the stock p3 regulator on it fine, or should I get a different one with it (In preparation for an axe) Thanks for any help!

Link to the tank:

Thats a good starter tank, some people don't like the GA regs/tanks, but i've never had a problem with them.

Also I think you might be comparing this GA tank with the Ninja Carbon Fiber tanks. Even though this GA tank is the same shape as the carbon fiber tanks, this is a aluminum tank, not carbon fiber. The Ninja aluminum tanks are similarly priced.

The new first strike tanks that are rounded like carbon tanks are quite nice for starting out. 62/3000, like the one in the link, but shop around.

I just bought one of the first strike(GA) 48/3000 tanks for my Rize. I looked at carbon fiber tanks but I just can't afford to buy the smaller tanks right now. I will say it weighs the same as my full size 48/3000 tanks but the size is really nice. I can get much tighter to the gun now. For 3x the money I could have saved a pound or so but I really like this tank.

On the Azodin, you're not going to have any issues worth speaking of. On an Axe, you may find yourself at the fill station more frequently than you'd like, so you will have to weigh that against the cost of a larger tank, or a higher pressure carbon tank.

I can tell you that I used 48/3000s for many years before upgrading to a carbon 68/4500. The difference, in terms of how many shots between fills, is huge, but it will set you back a few bucks. For reference, here is what I'm using:
