lol

Just take note that it's highly unlikely for a drop of oil to cause a fire.

If you want to stop a leaky air nipple, you have to REPLACE it.

Wow, that looks bad. His hand is going to take a long time to heal, but I feel the most sympathy for his marker :P

Oil does a number of bad things to an HPA tank. First, it becomes highly flammable and explosive when combined with high pressure air, and second it also tends to weaken the Loctite that holds tank regulators and other important seals on. It's a BAD thing. A lot of people do it with CO2 tanks to help oil the gun, keep the pin valve working properly, or other things. The difference is that CO2 is inherently not flammable. It's actually used to smother fires. Normal air, on the other hand, has enough free oxygen to support combustion. When it's compressed, it becomes concentrated and potentially very explosive.
