Well, I'm awake at 4:00 AM...

My cousin left over a big box of co2 tanks, and at around 4:00 I heard this ridiciously loud and crazy sound, nothing I had ever heard in my life, then a bunch of hissing.. then silence.. I quickly went to the lights, the fist thing on my mind was our hpa tanks, I went to both, I realized we had emptied them out. I notice a green box under his stuff and remember he had co2 tanks over here.. I open the box and then I see one little co2 covered in frost... I took it out, then went and put the whole box in the front room of my house.. I don't want another one scaring the **** out of me and leaving me even more paranoid..

The co2 tank looks fine, possibly something internally just completely broke.

You nitwit anime freak it was probably juts a burst disc. YOu liv ein utah right? A sudden change in temperature could cause it to blow. And it snot like theres going to be shrapnel, its just going to blow the disc and leak out.

I don't care who you are, if you have a Co2 tank and it does that in the staging area, it makes you look like the biggest newb.

^ More so when you freak out. ITs happened to a friends and he dropped it and the place cleared out like it was a bomb. I walk over, pick it up (had gloves), put it on the table, and continue to fill my pod.
