A friend shot bullets into a full tank and couldnt get it to blow up, it just leaked out the new hole.

Back in the day, we stumbled upon dozens of abandoned dead 1lb propane cylinders and we used them for target practice--(glass bottles were no-no). Guess how many exploded? Zero.

We all assumed some were not 100% purged..so being young fools that we were, we shot at a few full tanks and guess what happened. Think bottle rockets; the tank propelled away rather fast then sputtered to a stop.

Exploding propane tanks is a Hollywood invention.

The risk of danger is probably greater traveling with the TT propane tanks turned on (which I regularly do, gotta keep our Tillamook Ice Creams frozen...pics of our favs).

Yes that was possible due to the LEL and UEL of LP gas.
