bottles can be purchased empty at Amazon.com or locally at a
store that sells paintball guns. Amazon also has the
16gram small cartage sold in packs.
Here is an Amazon search for them. The 16 gram cartridges
are not refillable. A bicycle shop may also
carry the 16 gram cartridge to refill
bicycle tires. Businesses that sell pellet guns often also
carry the cartridges.
