Last I checked, Walmart has a 25-pack of Crosmans for $13-ish.

Yea, Keep in mind the same cartridges are used in PC dusters so check staples or something too you might beable to get like a box or crate.

I remember searching for this a while ago. I did find a good link to a guy who sells them practically wholesale (like in sets of 100 cartridges or something). They were dirt cheap too. I'll try and see if I can find the link for you but maybe try searching for CO2 wholesale in google or something.

EDIT: I have some leads however it's still not the guy.

Pyramid Air sells them in packs of 500 http://www.pyramydair.com/s/a/Crosma...Cartridges/590

This place sells them too however they ship through UPS so I'd avoid them unless it's your last option. http://www.getintosports.com/product...roductid=16741

Actually that link that you posted is good too. I'm not sure if they're legit however they have a storefront address listed (it's in PoCo if you're wondering). I don't know what it will cost you to get them shipped but try that place anyways.

Gotta point out, though, L473ncy (damn your name is hard to spell - can I call you Bob?) that while it is less environmentally friendly, Buying the 25 packs from Walmart is actually cheaper than in bulk IE the link you posted.

Yeah, you're gonna have a shitload of packaging left over, but I've always preferred going to a store than ordering online.

I was actually trying to be "leet" like fatal1ty but also original so that's how I got that name....

If you know the name of the person in my Avatar (the character he plays) you can call me that

You know what. You actually have a point there. I totally forgot the funds were listed in USD. Also at paintballgear the cartridges are 60 cents if he buys 100 (and free shipping if he spends $150).

Well since you guys are so nice, I might ask: how many BBs can you shoot from a CO2 magazine, roughly? will I be changing the cartridge every 5 minutes?

many thanks.

Depending on the gun, anywhere between 2 and 8 mags, based on personal experience.

So, yes, if you are shooting alot, you will be changing the canister very frequently.

hey jimski, just buy them at canadian tire... they are pretty cheap and you dont pay shipping... in my personal searches they are the cheapest around... buy a 50 count box and you'll be set for a while!!

My Nbb berreta gets 1-2 full games outa each cartridge (running 2 mags) A friend's WE CO2 2011 got 2-4 mags through (extended mags) off of one cartridge depending on how fast he was shooting.
