You MUST have a bleed valve to depressurize the line before removing it. The foster fitting locks securely at 3K PSI so I don't think you could remove it anyway but you DO NOT WANT to do that at high pressure EVER. 

Yup, you MUST close the tank valve and bleed the pressure from the fill hose. (Kinda why was confused by you previous posts) there is a separate 'valve' (although its a very simple one) in the gun to seal it against it's pressure bleeding off. Don't attempt to pull the hose out/off under pressure!
