Default Questions on compressed air.

hey guys I use a CO2 tank right now and im kinda new to the compressed air and stuff, so if you could help with a few questions. Well first of all, is compressed air and nitro the same thing? And if you have compressed air and you fill it up with a scuba tank? Also do you get more shots with compressed air then with CO2? Thanks fellas.

... well compressed air and nitro are the same thing ... and you can fill a scuba tank with compressed air and get an adapter to fill it yourself ...

Shotwise ... depends which tank your comparing to which ever one ...

For all practical matters yes. -Remember, "air" is nearly 80% nitrogen. That said, read this for detailed info.

Yes, but you'll need a fill station. Read up on tank filling in general here.

When comparing two physically similarly sized tanks, C02 will shoot almost twice as much. However I believe (don't quote me) that HPA can be lighter depending on the tank materials (think "shots per given weight" vs "shots per given size"). The link above for detailed info has shots per tank size charts for both CO2 and HPA.
