Being that I'm a certified diver, I just use my scuba tanks.
 
Household/commercial air tool compressors will not compress the air enough for use in paintball.

Most shop compressors max out at 150 psi. You can fill your own hpa off of scuba tanks. But you need to be a certfied diver to get a scuba tank refilled. Some paintball shops can get your tank filled for you when they get theirs filled, or you can find someone who is certified to go with you to get your tank filled.

Another option is to get a compressed nitrogen tank. You can get it filled at any industrial gas company thay refills oxygen or acetylene. Refills for nitrogen are cheap, and good used, but recently inspected tanks aren't hard to find, or expensive to buy.

For I will wander to and fro,
I'll go where I no one do know,

Car tires... usually between 26 and 50psi.

That's a No Go.

Most people don't seem to realize how hard it is to make something that high pressure safe and usable.

How 'bout you just blow into your tank. You are really annoying with all of your pointless spam. If a freaking car tire pump won't fill a tank, you can sure as hell bet that one of the low pressure regs on a balloon fill station sure as hell won't. Think before you post, oh wait, you don't.

Well, jjclown's previous posts have led many of us to believe that he is incapable of normal intelligent human thought, so I doubt that he was using this thing you call sarcasm. I mean I know nothing about this sarcasm, considering I wasn't using it in my previous post at all.

It helps to be a certified diver if you expect to be able to get that scuba
tank filled once you've spent the money on buying one.

You can not use any type off compresser that you can get. UNLESS you speed 5 Grand, Work at paintball filed/shop,Or you are a certified diver and then you can use scoba tanks.

 

So dont think you can jsut use teh one that you have in your house or gragre. You must be licences or whatever to do it like they do at Paintball shops.

 

Dont try anything just go to your scuba shop or paintball filed/shop to get your hpa tank filled.

n00bs and just plan dum people with no comman sence i tell ya.

Since when do you need to be a certified diver to fill SCUBA tanks? There are a few guys on my team who have no certification as far as I know and they go get their SCUBA tanks filled quite often for paintball play.
