I went to the place today that fills tanks and he showed me how he fills them, I also picked up a used digital scale for $10.  So basicly  (1) have the bulk tank upside down to fill (2) bleed off any co2 left in the paintball tank (3) zero out the scale (4)fill to a little less than rated tank size. Sounds easy enough... Thanks!

Ya that is the basis.

I need to check my pro shop to see if he has a scale. If not oh well. I will risk it.

I wish I could find a scale made for paintball. It looks wierd having a fish scale by your tank while playing paintball.

Also before you take your tank off, turn off the valve on the bulk tank and also unsrew the little knob above the tank and then release the pressure through the release valve. That way, your o-rings are as good as new.

1) most paintball places use fish scales.
2) use a scale it is better to look stupid than to be stupid...
3) the #s on the tanks are idiot proof... a 20oz tank SHOULD be filled to 20oz. 20oz in a 20oz tank will only fill it to about 75% leaving enough room for gas to expand. Doc has an artical at www.docsmachine.com about this.

note: less than the recomended fill (17oz in a 20oz tank) is ok however it will be much more efficant if you fill to 20oz due to expanding co2 and a bunch of stuff im to tired to explane.

I have been filling without a scale for over two years, I think I know what I am doing. I don't even fill it all the way.

I also want a scale but right now I don't have the money because I now have to pay for entrance fee's and field paint because I just joined a team. Stupid fields When I got the extra cash, i am going to buy a scale. You all shouldn't worry about me because it is my choice.

I know because I have remembered the weight of the tanks. I get like 600 shots out of the tanks. That isn't a full tank.

It probably would. I'm going to go to Wal-Mart and go to the fishing department and buy a scale. No worries.
