Get propane. Easier to reload since you don't have to fuss with co2 cartridges.

Coleman bottles will run you about $5.00

that will last you for months.
That is all that needs to be said.

Some guns take CO2, just make sure its not the Walmart or low quality or clearsoft brand. Those usually take the CO2 cartridges.

Propane is so much easier anyway. CO2 guns usually shoot really hard and usually exceed indoor FPS rules.

CO2 is, and this is the simplest yet best summary I've heard yet, the equivalent of a LiPo battery for GBBR. It works absolutely fantastic in many respects, but is super hard on the internals. Depending on the gun, your chances of breaking it go up dramatically by opting not to use propane.

Just do propane.

propane without a doubt, just cus its sooooooOO cheap. i love it. you can just empty dump your mag if its getting low and give it another fill. Im using a 5 dollar bottle for a couple months and its not even 10% empty.

i used to have a paintball gun that used CO2 cartridges and it was a pain in the ass, they cost at least a dollar each! on top of that , if you only have 10-20 shots you dont really want to waste the co2 so you end up having to reload while in a firefight quite often. also they can be really hard to find at times
