tank in the gun

I was wondering if it was bad to keep your tank in your gun for a while. for CO2 and nitro.

I would take it off just to be safe, plus it's kind of hard to store a paintball gun, with an air tank attached to it.

With an on/off, just cut off the air supply and shoot the excess air. With a regular asa, I'd take it off for it causes strain on the springs

It wont realy hurt anything, but you might as well just take it off.

if you leave it on it will weaken/do damage to your springs. if you get an on/off its fine since you can shut off the air going into the gun.

if you want to leave it on because of "im losing co2 when i unscrew my tank", dont worry about that. your not losing much, if any co2. thats the co2 that was in the gun being released out.

If it's going to be over an exdened amont of time, or over night, i'd suggest cutting off the air supply if you have an on/off, or take the tank out. If your leaving it in just for 5mins to get a snack at thefield before you play again, it's ok to leave it on.
