Re: [APD] Paintball CO2 - interest?

It's sounding more interesting. Financially, filling from
big tanks improves things. However, I would be hesitant to
get involved with filling compressed gas tanks. There are
certain risks involved, especially without the appropriate
equipment and safegaurds.

Do the paintball cartridges get filled to, and are rated
for the same pressures as 5 pound CO2 tanks?
