hpa is better for your marker but if you are new you dont need it rate now. It is also more consistant.

With CO2 performance depends on temperature as well. For instance, if you fire rapidly with your marker, there is going to be a time when your gun will end up taking in the CO2 as a liquid, freezing your internals for a bit and possibly damaging your O-rings. If the temperature is below 50 or so then you might get some freeze ups, but if you are in warmer weather...then not as much of a worry. The HPA is definitely better and more consistent for the marker and the prices for the heavy steel ones aren't that bad. It kind of protects your investment in my opinion. Saying that I know many happy players with CO2.

If you're getting your fills at a paintball shop, they should be able to fill air. Anywhere else, like Sports Authority or Wal-Mart, probably not.
