Couple questions regarding paintball CO2 system

1. Is the system ok at 1000 PSI, because I could not get it below that. My dad (Brilliant one that he is) unscrewed the CO2 tank while it was still attached to the regulator, and leaked all the CO2 out of the tank. So is 1000 PSI ok?

2. Is there a way to safely take the CO2 tank off of the regulator, even if the CO2 tank is full? If so, how? Is it any different to take it off when the tank is empty? Here are the options for replying to Question 2:
A. Explain thoroughly.
B. If you are nice, pictures.
C. If you are just having the best of days and are feeling really nice, make a video explaining how to do it.

Thank you!!!

Is this a A/S on off valve system?

1. Mine never went over 1000 psi. That is the most they would fill it up to most of the times.
2. To remove the tank you need to close the needle valve and then unscrew the top of the system (round cylinder piece) until the pin on the co2 tank in no longer depressed. Then it will be safe to remove.

Because of summer time my pressure gauge reads between 1200-1400 psi depending on the room temperature.

Will the PSI go to zero when I unscrew the cylinder piece, or will it stay where it is when everything is connected?
