no, First:
the regulator will regulate the CO2 down to the right pressure
SECOND:
if your regulator fails, the pop-valve will release all the pressure untill there is no more CO2 in the tank, so therefore yes, it is safe. by all means

and btw, if youre going to use propane to power a semi auto gun, use it in calibres smaller than .25 inches. otherwise, too much gas is released at once and the liquid propane gets shot out of your gun, not to mention it gets REALLY COLD too.

Exploding Co2? :lol: possible, if the tannk had too much pressure, although that would be a rare case cos the dealers and producer should know the right pressure for the tank and yes, VH_man is right.

Would the regulator pop off the tank if the CO2 tank was dropped?

Well the paintball regs are probably pretty tough, seeing the kind of abuse that paintball markers have to go through.

Co2 tanks, I have never heard of them exploding simply because on the tank there is a 3000 PSI burst disk. If the pressure gets too high the burst disk bursts and releases the pressure, all you have to do is replace that burst disk and the tank is good to use again. Typically, when filling Co2 tanks you are supposed to fill them about 1-3 ounces less than their capacity to allow expansion. For example, on my 9oz Co2, it would only be filled to 8oz. On my 48oz Co2 tank, it would only be filled to about 45oz. I have had my 48oz tank overfilled by about 20oz, fortuatly I used almost all of it during the game and game it not time to warm up and break my burst disk.

Aren't the regulators built into the body of the paintball gun? I was actually talking about a keg reg and tank, but I was also thinking about having a remote CO2 setup with a paint ball regulator if they are not built into the gun.

regulators on paintball guns usually are the "handgrip" at the front of the frame. they screw off i believe.

The best thing to do is to not tell your parents. Unless you get like blown the fork up. Then you might want to tell them...
