    I'm sure they take that into account when designing it.

    Big bear mountain is at 8805' above sea level, where atmospheric pressure is 4 psi lower. Typical airgun tanks are filled to 3000 psi. I think the tank will be fine at 3004 psi. You really should be worried about other modes of failure, like accidentally banging the tank against a hard surface. :devil:

    You're fine, just make sure the tank isn't old.... Like past the Hydro date.

    Depends... Are you flying or driving?

    If you're driving, you'll be fine, unless your truck is like chitty-chitty-bang-bang.

    If you're flying, don't worry, the TSA wouldn't find it until it went boom at high altitude once their job is irrelevant :eek:

    In other words, if you're flying, it is not safe nor legal.
