Much truth in this. At Canadian Carnage I had the person doing CO2 fills ask what my 3.5oz was. I said it was my CO2 bottle. She said she had never seen one that small. That set the mood for the fill.

She filled it and I headed out to the field. I was standing on the sidelines when I started to hear a slight hiss. I quickly backed the tank out of my Hammer A and it poured out of the bottle near the end of the turns(ie. the pin was depressed enough that since the bottle was overfilled the excess blew out). Thankfully, I only blew the tank o-ring and not the burst disc.
