Where is the best place to get a 68ci 4500PSI tank filled? I've heard diving shops but do they have air compressors with that high pressure?

My local scuba/dive shop fills my 72ci/3000 psi tank with no problems, however they told me that they personally could not fill 4500's. So i would check with your local shops just in case, but dont be surprised if they cannot.

Whats wrong with local paintball shops? they should be able to fill them for you.

The best place would be a field, since you can usually just get them filled at the end of the day when you go home for free. But any good paintball shop should have HPA available. I just don't understand why they charge per (K)PSI instead of volume and pressure.

cause they don't care how much volume it is, just how high of a pressure. they might start to care if it gets any bigger than a 114ci tank.

One way to know if your lazy is if you use print preview, because you can't press the print button your self.

Most welding supply shops can fill them as well.

Diving shops can only fill to 3000 PSI because that's the standard pressure for a SCUBA tank.
