Lesson learned:
Bought kegging kit without co2 cylinder.
Bought paintball co2 cylinder (thinking id save 50$) without doing enough research or even just thinking and the paint ball tank doesnt work on my regulator. Crumbled and went back online and ordered a 5lb cylinder tank. If i wouldn't have been such a cheap skate i could have have the cylinder and an extra corny keg for the amount i ended up spending

Dont even think i can return the paint ball cylinder

Perhaps all is not lost. You could use it to purge the head space if you use a secondary. Or perhaps you can buy a paint ball gun!!

Could get one of these adapters that let you run a paintball tank for your co2 setup.
