20oz is the largest CO2 tank you can put right onto a paintball marker. The bigger tanks are scuba sized. HPA doesn't get many more shots than a CO2 tank...a 20oz will get you about 1,000 shots on an average day, and the 72ci/3,000psi HPA tank gets about 720 shots on an unefficient marker.

on an untuned, stock marker - a 3000 psi tank gets roughly 10 shots per ci; a 4500 psi tank gets roughly 15 shots per ci. so...

47/3000=470 shots +/-
47/4500=705 shots +/-

was thinking myself of getting a big 4500 psi hpa tank, 70CI and up. went through 3 20oz co2 tanks last time, and about 2600 balls, , but also i play woods, so got a refill station myself onsite, but hpa would be nice for those cold weather games

If you go HPA, then get a Pure Energy 72/3k. They're on sale at www.pbgear.com for 64 bucks.
