If you're talking about the small ones we normally use them for targets and than toss them in the trash.

Nothing. Even if they are not completey empty the only thing that will happen is the gas will leak out. No fireball or anything. I know they did something on Mythbusters about this very subject.

These are for the big tanks but...

First, the Build Team decided to test whether it was possible to breach a propane tank with Bond's 9 mm handgun. They found that 9 mm rounds were not powerful enough to breach the tank, but shotgun shells and 7.62 NATO caliber rifle rounds were more than enough to pierce the tank. They then fired armor piercing rifle rounds at a tank filled with propane, but could not get the tank to explode. Not even tracer rounds were successful. Finally, the Build Team resorted to extreme measures in the form of high explosives and an 7.62mm Dillon Aero M134 minigun firing a mix of tracer and incendiary rounds at the same undisclosed location as "Shooting Fish in a Barrel". Both high explosives and the M134 were able to cause the propane tank to explode. The Build Team concluded the myth was busted as small arms were unable to explode a propane tank as depicted in Casino Royale, and that Bond would not have been able to get hold of a gattling gun or incendiary rounds.

Even the little green ones are refillable you just need the adapter. I've been doing that for a while now by filling up with my propaned pig. That way I don't have to haul around a full pig just a couple little canisters for ice fishing or such.
