If you have a remote line you can do it. There's probably other ways

Hmm didn't think of that. I know I had one, just gotta find it now.
Apparently It got thrown out last week... Go figure, keep it for 2+ years and the one time I need it, it got thrown out because someone didn't know what it was for.

If you don't have one you can just push the pin down in slow portions (hold it a little, let go, hold it a little, let go) and that should get rid of the air.

Needle is at 2500.

If it comes down to it I can go to my paintball field and have them drain it.

Disconnect one side of your macroline (if you use a marker that has one) and screw in your tank. That will degas it quickly...and loudly lol

The easiest way to drain the tank is by taking a small object such as a quarter for say and push down on the pin on top of the regulator. Keep pushing until it gets down to around 500 then you can push it with your fingers. The air will be cold so I suggest putting your shirt around your fingers when holding the coin or small object.

If you have an ordinary tire gauge, they have a knob on them to push the pin down. might work.

Does a tank have to be empty before you ship it ?
Also is there any way to empty it without a gun ?
I usually just push the pin in and gently let the air out.

I would just bring it to a paintball field. You are going to have to take off the reg to ship even with no air in it. It can be considered a bomb. I know USPS dont ask but UPS will ask to see it and wont ship if there is a reg on it.
