It's the exact same setup other then they probably won't be able to accomodate larger CO2 tanks.

CO2 used in beverage machines, welding setups or paintball guns are all the same commodity as well.

CO2 is CO2, but Trenchant is right in saying most paintball places can't fill big bottles. Most of us go to welding shops or ask the local fire department. I just exchange my bottles at a welding shop.

Only time I go to the Sports shop or Paintball shop is to get my 20oz filled for taking my keg to a buddies or to a party! They Sell a Nifty Adapter to Run Your keg with a 12 or 20oz paintball tank!
