Hey Guys just wanted to ask a question

This sound kinda dumb.

Is it alright to leave your tank full when your not playing for a while??
I Had my tank filled at the range, and we had to leave ubruptly so i couldnt empty.

Thanks.

yeah thats fine...how else would you be able to shoot the gun in the backyard, or whatever? really, nothing is wrong with doing that, it is its purpose...
After awhile it will empty itself because there will be some super small leakage, but that is over months

Also, if you dont have an on/off, dont leave it on your gun overnight. It'll empty because in the ASA it lets it out and it empties. I found that out the hard way.

Nah, they don't necessarily leak all the time. I had both my tanks filled right before I stopped playing and almost a year later they had the exact same pressure in them. Only thing that worried me is that the oring on the pin is probably somewhat depressed now (not sad, but indented!)
