Totally agree. A used scuba tank is about a $90-$100 item, and an air fill of it is only $7-$10. One (air) fill will last you about 1000-3000 shots before you have to fill it again.

The CO2 fill costs are pretty similar, but the entry costs (for the equipment) are lower, because CO2 only fills to a pressure of about 1000 psi. Scuba and air gun cylinders operate at 3000 psi, so have to be made stronger. I teach scuba diving, and have 40+ tanks at home as well as my own scuba compressor, so the choice was an obvious one for me.
