speaking of tanks: nsfw friendly reminder

tank safety seems to be a popular topic these days.

i ran into this in my hard drive, i thought i would dig this back up for anyone who has not seen it yet, KEEP OIL AWAY FROM TANKS. if i recall correctly someone oiled their fill nipple to fill their tanks, and then this poor guy was in line to use the fill station after them, so it wasn't even the victim's fault.

figured it's been a while since this happened so i bet a lot of new blood is on here who have never seen this:


and yes, that's burnt dead skin on his entire palm

there's another picture somewhere you can see them peeling the whole skin off in one piece to see the raw pink layer of skin underneath.

This needs to be posted more often, and fields need to take fills MUCH more seriously.

That's why I don't use compressed air.
CO2 all the way.

They can go just as wrong. There was a mother killed at her sons paintball birthday party because one kid unscrewed the tank incorrectly, and separated the bottle form the reg, as opposed to the ASA. The bottle flew and hit her in the head, killing her instantly.

People need to respect that you are essentially playing with a small bomb.

Was he holding the tank?

I'm always very fearful that this is going to happen to me. I always hold my marker by the snatch grip/beaver tail when filling and stand back a bit if i can.

And +1 for this being stickied

From what I understand, it was one of the older kids, and he was unscrewing it. I'm not sure how, but he was unscrewing the bottle from the reg, instead of the reg and bottle from the ASA.

I don't like how that article is written, because it makes paintball seem like such a dangerous sport.
