air tank question

Is it harmful to the tank or dangerous to store my ninja tank for long periods of time with it being like half full? i did not realize that it was still half full after i played last and i want to make sure in the future that i am not putting harmful pressure on the reg or other parts since this is my first compressed air tank and i want to try and take good care of it. any advice?

It will be alright.

If your tank is still holding air after a long period(multiple months) that just shows how good the tank is lol

it wont be a problem at all, even max capacity it shouldnt be a problem if the tanks in good condition.

mine sat in my bag with 2500psi in it for over a year lol. you dont have anything to be worried about.

they are actually rated to about twice the amount of pressure we put in them, i think the "failure" area is somewhere around 8000psi.
