Is it safe to leave the cO2 tank attached to the gun? I figure it would act the same as if it was attached to lets say a soda-fountian, etc.

No, it's not good to have too much pressure. Take it off, it's not hard.

The gas released when you take of your tank is the air that was in the marker at the time of depressurization. No air is actually escaping your tank, and the amount of air your lose in your marker is an incredibly miniscule amount.

instead of making a new thread i guess i will ask in this one...

i heard at the field i go to that the release of air when you unscrew your tank is harmful to either your gun or your hpa tank, apparently the solution was to dryfire as you unscrewed your tank

didnt make sense to me is it true?

Yeah its a good thing to do, like Roadkill said the gas being released when you unscrew your tank is the gas inside the gun, so dry firing it while you unscrew it helps. The only way it can be harmful like you said is when using c02, some of the liquid can get on your hand or parts of your gun, but its nothing really serious.

Just buy a on/off it makes life a lot easier that way you dont have to dry fire the gun while you unscrew the tank and you can leave the tank on without the gun being pressurized.
