P.S does anyone know a place that sells cheap compressed air tanks in CO?
It's pretty much been repeated in here, but yes, HPA is always better than CO2 for the sole reason that it's a non-volatile gas, instead of a liquid.
No adapter needed, unless you're using a Tippmann 98 custom, where you'll actually need an HPA kit. Otherwise, just gas it up and go.
Also, check the BST thread for cheap tanks. You can generally find good deals in the gearbag sales, for anywhere between $88-$110 for "standard" sizes, or around $30 for the 48ci/3000psi tanks.
I would definitely recommend a 48/3000 tank to start out with, just to see if you like it. If you don't notice any major difference, I'd think about getting a decent entry-level priced (this could be a very old high-end marker, or a newer mid-range) electro pneumatic marker and upgrade to a 68/4500.
Hope that helps.
