Oxygen tanks

With all the searching I've done, I've only gotten info on a scene in Jaws, where to find oxygen tanks and such, and a 73 year-old man who was on an oxygen tank shooting someone.

How possible is it for an explosion to happen when an oxygen tank is shot, only once? Are there certain bullets that could do this if it's unlikely, and who would be using these bullets [SWAT teams, military, etc.]?

Thanks. :)
