Maybe you could find a cheap paintball tank? (Then you would need an adapter, $15)

I really need to get a second regulator. I have a 20oz tank that I never use because my regulator is with my 4# in the kegerator. It would be great to have something real portable for whatever.

a 20oz paintball tank with an on/off valve would not need an adapter, as there is no pinvalve on it. You can find them with that valve installed for about $5 more.

a 20oz tank will empty out 4x as fast, and cost 80% of what a 5lb costs to fill....

At a sporting goods store it would cost that much?

it is $7 to fill my 20Oz, and $10 to fill my 5lb
My 20oz tank with On/off valve was $30 at the paintball field ($25 with a pin valve)

Im running a paintball tank setup , my 20oz tanks cost 3$ to fill at the pball place.
there is no gas supply shops in town here , so every few months i travel out and get my 20lb tank filled, then i have a paintball tank fill station , just flip the tank upside down and fill my own pball tanks for the kegorator and for playing paintball.

works well , if your into playing paintball and drinking homebrew... "2 birds one stone".
cheap too . cost between 17-22$ or so to fill the 20 lb talk... at the welding shop's around here.

filling them myself the 20oz tanks cost around 1$ to fill

I leave my kegs alone after priming for a month. Never a problem with the carb level and they're ready when I tap them. The real trick is getting far enough ahead (I'm not, but I'm getting there!) to be able to leave the keg alone for 3 weeks or so. Keep an eye on CL and when you can pick up a CO2 cyl. for cheap, you'll have other options. Luck - Dwain
