Hi everyone,
i am new to the sport and in love with it just had a quick question. For those of you running co2 have you found any problems with it and the mr3?? Was thinking of getting a mr3 and running anti-siphoned co2 or a remote for awhile. Eventually want to upgrade to a hpa tank but the thing is our local shop can only fill 3000psi tanks and they sounded reluctant to fill a scuba tank :( So once again kinda stuck with it for now plus we have a bulk co2 tank we use to refill when we play. my options rite now are either buy co2 tank with and anti siphon or a remote, get a huge 3000 psi tank, or buy a few 48ci/3000 tanks. decisions decions lol.

a 68/3000 would do you fine...plenty of shots...more than a 48/30 will...not to mention 68/30's are lighter.

forgot to mention when we play its woodsball for between 4-8 hours so dont think the 68/3000 will last me all day though

was also thinking of maybe using a hpa setup and going to co2 if i ran out of air but not sure yet

I assume you have a CO2 tank or two already.
I would get the Hpa tank and if you play for 4-8 hours, definatly get a remote. Before a day when you play, fill up your HPA tank and your CO2 tank, and that should be good for a day depending on how much you shoot. If you have two, that woudl be better than only having one, and HPA is better for your gun. If you ever decide to upgrade, you will have what you need for the next level.

you wont have problems with CO2 w/ or w/o a remote. but if I were you I would get a few CO2 tanks and a remote

The CO2 is damaging your system everytime you use it. I just switched over to HPA not too long ago, the difference is amazing. I run a 72/3000 tank w/ remote. Also a good vest for carrying a big tank. If you dont shoot at everything you can see you should be able play for 5-6 hours with a tank full. I played in a 200 man scenario, and shot continually for 3 hours. I still had 1000 lbs of pressure but filled up cause I had the time. That was about 700 rnds in 3 hrs
