Only reason to go paint ball is cause it's cheaper and just as good.

You may find one cheaper but paint ball is just easy.

And how much was your tank?


Anyways it doesent really matter. Once you have a reg and a noid on there they are exactly the same but the fills are cheaper.

$40, although I believe you specified regulator cost (ie minus tank).

Well I ment full set up, I got my aquatek mini for 84 bucks on eBay , and my 4 pound tank for 15 bucks.

So it's a little cheaper.

You can Craig's list all these paint ball tanks a lot easyer as well so I bet you could do cheaper than that if you tried.
