    ok some gas guns work differently

    1:CO2 these have a place in the magazine for you to place a capsule which can be bought in bicycle shops, they sell them for tyre inflators.

    2:refillable these have a resevoir in the gun and are filled from litre bottles. as far as i know these can't be bought in ireland but as airsoft grows they should pop up. if you buy one of these buy a few bottles and maybe by the time they are gone you will be able to buy them here.

    Last time i looked at these in a bicycle shop, they were €2-3 each, i buy them online for about €1 each, and even at that, im sure if i shopped around id find them cheaper elsewhere.

    yea i guess i just thought you didn't want to buy off the interweb every time you needed one.

    rovi i'm preety sure that won't work, you can use it in paintball though

    no they cant although you can get pistols that use little 1 use CO2 canisters.
    although the P3 minigun can use refillable canisters


    Hint when using a gas gun no matter what type always leave a bit of gas left in the magazine or gun so that the seals do not dry out and leak the next time you use it.

    This is a wild guess but I think, seeing as he wanted a gas gun 6 years ago, he won't be interested.
