    Yeah.... No. Too general a statement, my friends. For modern electros and STBBs, sure. For a large variety of older markers co2 is totally fine and often more efficient.
    Current markers: Not as many as teh Calgar

    I would love to switch to HPA but the nearest place to get fills is 2 hours away, one way.

    In the summer my Extcy gets more shots per fill than Hpa. Plus outlaw is easier with Co2. All I have to do is get to a Dick's and good to go.

    Also since I don't use ramping and play more on Billyball....Co2 is perfect for me.

    That doesn't tell the WHOLE story...

    If you're comparing a 20oz CO2 vs a 48/3k tank, then you'll almost always get more shots per fill on CO2. That doesn't make it better, though.

    I've yet to see an example of how CO2 is more efficient on any marker BESIDES some specialized OLD guns (ones that'd require liquid CO2, etc, haha). I'm not arguing that all HPA tanks will result in more shots per fill than all CO2 tanks, of course... but I don't think that either HPA OR CO2 will make your gun run more efficiently.

    During high heat, you'll get way more shots out of your CO2 tank, no doubt, but I think that with all of the benefits, HPA is significantly better, regardless.


    Outlaw ball, rural areas... if you don't have a scuba tank, well, I won't argue with you there It's just easier to deal with CO2. (And I believe I had a disclaimer at the beginning of the video regarding that... You pedants, hehe)

    Just to play devil's advocate: due to its expansion properties, most markers capable of working on CO2 will be get more shots from that gas, per cubic inch of storage capacity, than a comparable 4500 psi HPA bottle. It's not uncommon to see markers cabable of 70-100 shots per ounce of CO2.

    I can almost pull off a case on a Co2 tank....on a hot summer day. I haven't quite made the 2000 mark. But I try.....

    It's true... though shots per fill is really the only benefit. And only in certain situations/times of the year.

    If shots per fill was the only metric we would all be using propane...

    Man the propane marker was cool. Loud though. If I remember correctly. Wasn't it a C3 or something? Never got to shoot it. But there was a guy using one in a big game once. Only time I ever saw one.
