Actually, Halotron is the good stuff. Halon was much more unfriendly!

Halon is banned, but Halotron is the replacement.
CO2 is the best value and as Andrew said, $65 is a good deal.

CO2 extinguisher

Hi Gary, you can get better deals from the guys who fill them. They usually have used one's laying around.

The one you saw at my place is a 5lb aluminium refilled bottle from hamilton fire supply. It was around $80. You can get the steel ones for cheaper but I like the alum. lighter and look a little nicer. If you need, I can have Bronco look into one for you.

Weight is important because you have to lug the thing between your car and the flightline every time you go flying.
I talked to a fire safety specialist. He said that Halon is not the inert stuff that we learned about in high school chemistry class......in the process of extinguishing fires, it creates some toxic gases (now, I don't know if Halatron has overcome this issue.) He highly recommended CO2.

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you will have to catch up.
