I have a friend that owned a paintball field and he told me he would sell me his 50lbs tank for $50. Is this going to be way to big? I know most people use the smaller tanks, but for $50 I figured this would be a great deal. Cheers

The tank may have a dip tube in it so that will have to be taken out, but that is still a bargin at that price.

Dip tube? What exactly is that and how will I know if it has one, not very familiar with co2 tanks. Oh and got the tank today and the thing is completely FULL. So that's pretty nice now I have to wait to get all my keg supplies in.

They are used on fill tanks to move the liquid into the tanks that you fill up. It's like the liquid tube of a corny keg, pulls out the liquid and not the air.
