does the Float 36 ship from Backcountry with the canister initially filled?

I would certainly hope so, and would guess that would be the case.

It does, but it only ships via ground. FAA regulations prevent shipping pressurized containers on an airplane. So, no overnight shipping and no travelling with a charged canister.

I just got one a month ago and it shipped with an empty canister. quite frustrating since it is counties away to find a filling station.

Due to hazmat regs, we have to ship our canisters empty. Apologies for the inconvenience - we hope to have a more streamlined solution soon!

Ships with canister empty, but I got mine refilled for free at a local BCA dealer. I deployed the airbag to test it, and got it refilled a second time for $7 at a local scuba shop. Apparently anywhere that refills paintball gun canisters is another place to check.
