Default Does anyone run a Nitro palm control on something other than air compressor

Hey everyone! I'm looking for some advice on powering a nitro remotely. Steve said to look into hpa that some paintball places have gone to. Mine here haven't and worries about getting it filled locally. We are kicking around nitrogen as I can get that from my local gas supplier.
The nitro goes through a bunch more air than the classic of course so maybe it's not really practical. Either way I'm excited to have it. Remote use would just be a bonus

High pressure paintball refill compressors start at around $350.00.
High Pressure bottle start at around $40.00 for 48 cubic inches at 3000psi.
You probably also need the right adapter for the bottles you buy so another $50.00ish dollars.
All prices where sourced from Amazon.

Compressor $350.00
Bottles x 3 $120.00 (or more so you always have one ready to go)
Adapter $50.00

Total - $520.00

I don't know what you would pay for refills at a gas supplier but for my welding equipment I pay $42.00 to refill my small argon bottle I use as a emergency back up for my TIG(I've run my Classic w/ foot control off it at a show before). Just using that as an example 13 refills would pay for the equipment.

Hope that helps.
