Default CO2 sales Louisville Ky-Southern Indiana???

Hey all...Does anyone know of a business that refills CO2 in the area noted? I called Liquor Barn and I was promptly informed that unless I pay a 100$ deposit fee and then 8$ for a fill I could not purchase or exchange my brand new 5# CO2 tank for one of theirs...Well I wont be buying anything from there anymore...I have a call into the HB Club and am awaiting a response...Would Paint Ball courses be able to fill a 5#er or are they relegated to the 20oz or smaller? Thanks

I just find a gas place. Like for welding and stuff. I don't think paintball places can do it. Different fittings.

Head to Welder's Supply, 335 Boxley Ave.

(502) 637-4771

Under $10 for 10 pounds, under $8 for 5 pounds, and they'll fill your cylinder rather than exchange it.

My buddy and I where told the same thing. Whoever was answering the phone had no clue. We spoke to a manger this morning and its all worked out, they will do the exchange for the price of the gas only. The manger was pissed at who ever had been telling customers this. The bad thing about welders supply is they are only opened till 5 and no weekends, and to keep your tank you have to drop it off and pick it up the next day.

I have found if you get ask the guy exchanging the tanks at the welding supply they will give you shiny new aluminum tanks every time. A 6 of HB don't hurt once and a while also .

My place just replaces my tank with another one. Sometimes it's shiny sometimes it looks like crap. It holds the same and always pushes!

I started with crappy looking steel ones but since they are inside my kegerator the tend to rust and leave a nasty ring if I don't put it on something like a plastic plate. Also 20 lb steel tanks are heavy
