I was going to try and run stock class, but twelve grams are just far to expensive for my liking unfortunately.

I will probably go with the 3.5oz CO2 for price and size. I just did some calculations and running a 13/3000 air tank would be more expensive than running stock class.
My field charges $2.5 for filling CO2 tanks under 12 oz, and $1 per one thousand psi for HPA tanks.
The cost per shot for the 13 cu/3000 psi HPA tank is $0.024 a shot. ($3.00 divided by 125 shots)
The cost per shot for the 3.5 oz CO2 tank is $0.008 a shot ($2.5 divided by 300 shots)
The cos per shot for 12 gram cartridges is $0.016 a shot ($0.50 divided by 30 shots)

When I traveled I asked for and received a discount filling my 3.5oz co2 at every field. They understand how small your tank is and see the reasoning.
At our field we sell all day air or co2 fill cards. Our co2 is priced at $.25 an ounce, so a $5 card gets you 20oz.
Ask and you may receive.
