    So  my Benjamin discover  is coming in the mail sooo excited to get my first ever PCP :) i have a question tho 
    how long can Air be stored in the gun  ? so i need to like shoot it down to 0 PSI every  time im done shooting for the day ?can i use the bleed on the pump to let all of the air out ?
    or   are you supposed to  let all of the air our or are you supposed to leave air in ? im a complete new guy to this been watching Tedsholdover for 3 years but iv never thought about  keeping or not keeping air in the gun ?  just wondering because sometimes i  may  only get 1 shot per day at a squrrile so if so  if i have to shoot it down thats a lotta pellets  or can you dry fire it down ?

    Okay great thankyou ZT  :)       was hoping for that answer because yeah that would be a bummer having to get rid of the air every day

    ZT is right -leave it pressurized, this will keep the seals clean. If you’re going to store it for a long time (like THAT will happen with a new gun) it’s good to shoot it down to whatever pressure you refill at (probably around 1000 psi) and leave it stored like that. Got a scope yet?
