Just think of your pcp air rifle as you would your tires on a car. In the winter you add air because air contracts as it gets colder and expands as it heats so you let air out in the summer. Just hunted with my Airforce condor today pumped it up to 2900 in side set it in my truck overnight and when I got it out to go hunting it dropped 300 psi so I pumped it back up to 2900 and its 20 degrees outside. You will also get fewer shots in colder weather.
