That only applies to extended storage. If you intend to put your gun away for a few years without use, “they” (whoever they are) say that it should be stored with around 1000 psi of pressure. 

For or a gun that gets regular use, there is no problem leaving it full. I keep air in all of my regularly used pcp guns. I keep air in my scba tanks too, and expect no issues while in their useful service life. They absolutely will not “stretch”. They are made to stand double the pressure they are rated for (or more) or there would be a lot more safety issues than we see. 

As this would be his first gun, I can’t imagine it is going into storage any time soon.
