Devious Penguin Mod
I met my current team due to a burst disc rupture. It was a warm day out and I had left my 14oz in a metal ammo can. I heard it on the field and when I came back out, the can was mangled and they were poking it with a stick.

i had some bottles freshly filled and they were in my house. i left home to do some things and my mom and dog went in my house to clean some things. one of the disks blew and it scared the hell out of my mom and the dog busted out the front door like a bat out of hell. lol... my mom called my cell phone and asked what the hell blew up and all i could do is laugh because i knew what had happened.

If anyone has played Skirmish before this year you likely remember the bus ride from the main center, my burst disk blew on that ride. I was the last one on so I was only 2 benches behind the driver! I had just filled my 20oz at the main center and had strapped it in my 6+1 and ran to the bus. We got about half way to the fields and it blows, a nice co2 cloud covered the front of the bus. The bus driver freaked out and swerved a bit and started cursing like crazy. It was pretty damn funny, at least I thought so.

King of the OFG
I had all my CO2 tanks in one of those aluminum suitcases, bringing them home from a fresh fill when the burst disk on my 20 oz went off. Sounded just like blowing a tire. I had about an hour drive left before I got home, and I just let it be.
Remember, this is in a sealed aluminum case packed in foam...
When I got home and opened up the case, it was nearly full of dry ice. The foam acted as a nice insulator, and the case held enough pressure that the CO2 had solidified. It was pretty damn awesome. I played with dry ice for 20 minutes instead of unpacking the car.

Old, Slow and Angry
so far I've been pretty lucky with burst disks. Last fall I had a couple of friends over. Most of them have flirted with the idea of playing paintball, but none of them had. We were in the back yard shooting my blazer at some stationary targets.
I had a HPA Tank a few 20oz CO2's and one 3.5 oz tank with us. After explaining the difference, I jokingly said that the 3.5 oz tank was really old and I had to check it for leaks before using. I shook the tank and held it up to my ear....that's when I yelled "it's gonna blow!"
and tossed it like a grenade into my lawn. Good times...good times

I drive the boat.
I remember back in the day, when one guy with a fresh fill decided to warm up his tank by putting it on the dash of his truck, in the sun, with the defroster on...
Paintball is fun!

I've had quite a few pop myself from over-filling or just carelessness (leaving a freshly-filled tank in my trunk on a hot day, etc). The funniest incident I remember, though was when a (probably overfilled) 20 oz tank down in my basement blew. One of my cats (Rocket, a very stealthy, wiry, and usually unflappable tabby) was sleeping on a pile of my paintball duds nearby. I heard the distant and distinct "POP" and "WHOOOOOSH" from the living room and less than a second later Rocket flew by me and dove under the couch (his "happy place"). All I saw was a blackish brown blur go past me and then his green eyes, big as saucers, peeking out from under the sofa. Since then, he bolts whenever he sees hears CO2 venting (like when I'm de-gassing a gun).

wow, I guess I have been fortunate that I have had only two tanks with blown discs... And that was only because the people filling the tanks didn't believe me when I told them they were 7oz tanks and NOT 9oz tanks...l

Moderating in Moderation
I had two freshly filled 12oz. tanks blow while sitting in traffic going to EMR for PP2. I had them in the hatch and it wasn't that warm out - or so I thought. The first one scared the S*** of of me - sounded like the airbrakes of a truck except right on top of me.
When the second one went I said s*** there goes another, enjoyed the new cool temperature and lovely co2 smell and wondered how many more tanks were going to go.
