    It is ok to store your CO2 cylinder sideways. However, it is not ok to use it while it is placed lying sideways. The reason being that CO2 in cylinders are stored under pressure and the CO2 is in liquid state. Tilting it sideways may result in the CO2 liquid entering the regulator (bad for a whole host of reasons, details can be found online)

    Not if your cylinder is lying down n the regulator is pointing upwards.
