Paintball tank orientation

I know that placing compressed gas tanks horizontally while in use is a bad idea, but what about paintball tanks? I've seen many paintball tanks mounted on guns in a horizontal fashion. Am I missing something? Perhaps the guns have an expansion chamber? I'm interested in getting into pressurized CO2 but don't have the vertical space for a tank. My wife already says the canister filter makes the tank look like a "science project".

On a related note, has anyone had an antisiphon installed on a bulk co2 tank?
