Storing Tanks With Air?

Hey all, got 2x 48/30 (Steel) tanks, is it bad to get them filled, and then store for a week or so?

And I'm about to be getting a 68/40, will it be bad to store it compressed aswell?

Basically I live 20-30 mins from an AirGas who I assume will fill them, but then I play woodsball only on weekends. One fill will prolly last me two weekends.

Do I need to shoot them empty, or is it fine to store both steels and fibers for up to a week, without potential damage to the tanks?

It's fine to store your tanks with air.

I've stored for a few months to come back to have some fill left.

Gotcha! Thanks! Obviously I know it'd be bad and stupid to leave them hooked to my marker with all that PSI putting pressure on the rings and such, but yeah I figured it wouldn't be bad to store the tanks in my closet for the next weekend.
