I assume that I should be able to get a 10lb fill for $10 are so. Am I dreaming?
lol, I remember once wanting to keep mine... now i don't care.
I live in Portland. I know the only place here is a LHBS called steinbarts. They're a huge LHBS. Other than that, they're pretty much exchange. So your best bet would be a larger LHBS. I also heard fire extinguisher places do CO2, so that might be an option? Maybe even a paintball place since they have the machines.
Just remember if you exchange it, you don't pay for hydro. And generally the ones I get from AirGas are always in excellent shape as if it were the one I exchanged.
10lb for 10$ is probably a dream... I pay $20 for 5# (exchange) and it's about the same for a 20#...
Sorry I couldn't be more help
