    Hey guys,

    I have been filling my Cricket .25 directly from my shoebox Max compressor. The next item I’m going to purchase is a tank. I’m leaning toward Joes Guppy (18 cu ft) but was wondering how many fills you guys are getting from that or similar sized tanks. My thought is a tank would speed up my filling and allow me to go out for a weekend of hunting. I’m leaning toward portability, but is my thinking flawed?

    Thanks everyone, I’ve been loving this forum!

    Not flawed, thats a great option to have and im sure many people do the same. I have a ninja 90ci and i used to fill my mrod about 10 times with it. Havent checked the cricket and the condor gets about 4-5 fills. you can check # of fills here: http://www.calc.sikes.us/2/

    I have Joe’s Great White tank. It’s heavy and a pain to lug around but is perfect for bench shooting or group shooting as it’ll last for up to 70+ fills. I’ve also been tossing around getting Joe’s guppy just to carry in my truck for barn yard shooting at different farms. Something light, easy to carry, and fills fast. I can’t imagine it’ll take more than a few minutes to top off.

    I have something similar to the guppy tank and will fill 25 cricket 2 time and then 2 time there after but not to 230 bar. It’s the only way to go if you want my opinion. Guys with big tanks wish they had a smaller one. I have a bigger tank and only use it to tune guns. I never take them with me

    Thanks for all the input/advise. It’s nice to hear from folks who have been where I am and can offer some insight. I think I I’ll be getting Joes guppy. Eelect, Joe has it listed on his site as 18 cu ft, am I missing something?
    Thanks again everyone!

    It could be 18. I just know it’s a shade smaller than Joe guppy. Go for the guppy. There was one for sale on yellow couple weeks ago. Would have been a steal of a deal. $300

    Wish I’d had seen that. Getting tired of lugging my GW. I’ll get one and fill it with my GW till that’s low then refill GW.

    I am also looking for a small tank, good for about two or three fills, I lugged my G/W 300 miles and just fill the gun twice, Not worth it,
    Lots of cheap ones on Crags list, But I think I would like to buy new, Sure hate to have the thing POP on me,
    I have only used my compressor twice since I owned it, Two many irons in the fire,,,

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I will be getting a guppy or similar sometime in the next year. Honestly I don’t feel much of a rush, the current set up is working really well!

    You looking for a used tank , Or a new one, Small guppy tank?
    The only problem I have buying used is the abuse the tank might have had,
    I can get a 4500 Carbon tank for under 100 bucks on Ebay, Just not sure I could trust it,
    I wonder if they have safety valves in them?

    Yes Mike. I like the idea of a smaller tank to take over to the cattle barn instead of lugging my GW. Then I’d refill off of GW. Sounds like the way to go.
