I would rather take 2, 3 dry shots before starting a shooting session than to try fixing it and making it worse. I think it happens in many guns but in cse of an Impact the creep gets noticed due to a reg guage.

I have a huma reg in my Marauder. The pressure read the reg pressure. I set to 1800psi and it holds 1800 psi for weeks and even months without shooting. No leaks or creeps. So it's not cause the impact has a reg gauge that people are now noticing. Imo for a $2000 gun it should hold pressure for a month before it creep a bit. But people having creep like overnight. 

I had a Huma regulator in my .25 Marauder, but after several months and thousands of pellets of frustration, I took it out.  Originally I set the reg at 1,900 psig.  After shooting it  few times I noticed the pressure had crept up to about 2,100 psig.  So I took it out and adjusted again, slightly lower.  Back in and many shots later, the reg pressure now read 1,200 psig.  This chasing of a consistent pressure continued for months as I shot the rifle well over 2,000 rounds with the reg installed.  This Huma regulator was in and out of the .25 Marauder so many times as to be ridiculous.  One day about two months ago, I got the rifle out for shooting and saw the reg pressure had jumped to 2,600 psig.  I could not believe it?  So I took the regulator out and put it on a shelf.  My Maruader is much happier without it.  I have yet to decide what I am going to do with this Huma reg as it is the 2nd Huma in less than a year that has given me grief.  I don't know whether to rebuild it or just hang it out at 100 yards and use it for a target.
