That should work for getting the n2o. I just need a tank to store it in.
I checked Autozone's website and they sell 10lb and 15lb "tank kits" but
they are like $500! That's ridiculous. I don't need anything specialized,
just a tank that these guys can fill. I'm curious why those kids are so
expensive. Maybe they are special light weight tanks or something.
