ive heard people saying you need to get "food grade" co2... does it really make a difference or can i get mine filled up at a fire station?

You can look for a tavern supply store or a welding supply store.

CO2 is CO2, no vendors want to sell dirty gas as it would damage their filling apparatus. You can go to a place that services fire extinguishers, welding supply or homebrew supply shop to name a few. I prefer the homebrew shop myself for obvious reasons!

Also many paintball shops sale it also.

thanks, i know of a welding supply shop nearby. it should cost less than $15 to fill up a 10lb tank shouldnt it?

Thats probably about the going rate, I think my local homebrew shop gets $12 for a 5 lb and $16 for a 10 lb.
