Gasp.. paintball questions!

All of my air tanks are horribly out of hydro and I got invited to Skirmish Normandy.

I have IIRC a 48/3k and a 50/3k steel and a 68/45 CF that are all probably at least 8 years old.

C02 is cheaper than air obviously. I plan on buying a case of paint and the field doesn't fill C02.

Two 24oz tanks for the weekend? I plan on using a 98 with an Automag and Sheridan pumps as backup. I have a vest with remote.

Mmhhh just can tell that in Germany new CO2 tanks are fine for 10years of use before ...

How much do you want to shoot ??? I renember CO2 Times(Long Long time ago) my Spyder or 98 with a full 12oz was fine for ca. 1200 shoots but also depends of how fast you fire, using anti liquid etc.

I think one day a box is a good waste !!!   
I like Tippmann !!!

Rule of thumb with 800-850psi operating pressure is 1000 shots per 20oz CO2 before refilling.

10 year hydro date on CO2 in the US as well.
