Would it be worth it to buy a compressed air tank rather than use my 20 oz. c02 all the time,and what is the difference and why do alot of people like air better.

personally if you have the money i would deffienyl get a HPA tank.

Their are many reasons why they are better then c02.  They are more consistant , they are alot cleaner for your gun more gas les luquid.  Most fields have free air refills.  If you shoot at a high rate of fire it wont freeze your gun over like c02 could.  their are more reasons but thats what i have.

(2) more efficient
(3) you can shoot more
(4) you can use it in all weather
(5) they are safer

If you have the money get hpa. It gets rid of the problem that liquid CO2 causes. Your marker just runs smoother with hpa.
NASA and the Americans spent millions of dollars and hundreds of hours to develop a pen that would write in space.....The Russians used a pencil.

^^Basicly what they said. So if you have the $ then defiantly look into getting it. You can find some good deals on ebay (on tanks).

Is HPA better than CO2? Yeah, pretty much. Is it worth it to upgrade? Well, that depends. How much do you play? What type of paintball gun do you have? How do you play on the field?

If you have a high end electronically controlled Autococker, Automag, etc and were screwing a CO2 tank into it, you would be half nuts. The CO2 can do damage to the valves of these guns that were built specifically to run on HPA. If you are running a basic Tippmann setup, the gun will work just fine, even if a little liquid CO2 DOES enter the gun. Do you shoot a ton of shots on the field, or do you play a tad more conservatively? Rapid shooting will kill the pressure on a CO2 tank, whereas it doesn't much affect an HPA tank.

Lastly, there is the price concern. If you just play a couple weekends a summer, it's not really cost effective to pay for the equipment to run air over CO2.

^^He's right. I wouldn't get it if I were you. Tippmanns run just fine with co2, HPA isn't needed.
