Recharging AC: DIY?

I need my AC recharged, it works just doesn’t get as cold as it used to. I have been thinking of just buying the stuff at a parts store or Walmart and doing it myself. They have the pressure gauge right on it so it should be safe. I just can’t decide if I should go for it or take it to a shop. The AC system was professionally rebuilt at a dealership a few years back and there should be no leaks. I just don’t want to hurt the system.

Suggestions? Success stories?

I've been doing mine for years. I use the stuff with stop leak in it because you shouldn't need to recharge it. I've never had any problems and never had to do it twice.
