Default Cheap Co2 bottles?

http://houston.craigslist.org/tls/660702389.html

Just passing this along. I have no idea about the person who placed the ad, but this is a great deal if legit.

Wow, I was just looking for a CO2 tank today and Houston's not that far. Are 60lb tanks the ones that are about 5 ft tall? That doesn't fit the subtleness that I was hoping for, but $50....................... Hmm....

I saw that and got excited. Then, I thought "how in the world will I handle that tank?" At least I wouldn't have to move it very often.

I'd have to borrow a truck and bring a friend or 2 with every time I filled something that big! Thankfully you wouldn't need to do it that often.

You can contact your local fire extinguisher company to deliver CO2 to a large tank which cannot easily be moved. I have a 20lb tank and its not fun.
