Lets talk about how we might use this.http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=166441-61735-J-6901-100
$99 Lowes. Comes with a 9oz Cylinder. 20oz cylinder available.
Exchangable tanks at Lowers via Blue Rhino. $6 for the small ~$9 for the large. Same tank as paint markers?
I know you might be able to retro something else cheaper, but this has triple threat potential:
1.) Intended use (air tools)
3.) OBA (for Jeeping)
IDK if the guage reads the pressure or allows adjustment. If not a secondary might be spliced inline on the hose.
At the very least the idea that Lowes will be carring these tanks for exchange is very cool.
I assume that is a typo and it is 9oz and 20oz cylinder?
Edited that... Thanks whodwho.

I really like this idea. Looks like the price has dropped to $89 (new link: http://www.lowes.com/pd_82384-61735-J-6901-101_0__?productId=3113951&Ntt=kobalt+portable&pl=1 ¤tURL=%2Fpl__0__s%3FNtt%3Dkobalt%2Bportab le). While that's awfully expensive for a regulator, it would remove the need for one of those little paintball-to-standard-regulator adapters. It looks really compact, but I wonder if you could easily replace the 10' hose with something smaller.
Hooking one of these to a 9oz paintball tank and a 5 gal. corny would be perfect for a road trip!
Last year (or maybe 2-years) for black friday they sold these for $49. You should be able to find plenty of 1-2 year old threads talking about them.http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/lowes-mini-co2-tank-regulator-87657/http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/blue-rhino-co2-tanks-lowes-175401/
