    I have had my new impact for a week now and long story short, I am too busy buying and researching stuff(optic, mount, rail extender, bipod, buttstock pad thingy, nitrogen, tank, cleaning kits) and havnt bought pellets yet.  So my buddy is over tonight and he grabs the gun and cocks it.  So, now what?  I cant load a pellet and discharge.  Good thing is that I got it from Utah airguns and they fill and shoot the guns before shipping because I read that firing without air can hurt the regulator.  Do I leave it cocked and order lead or do I dry fire it?  Also is it ok to store the guns with air in them all the time even for extended periods, or should I be releasing the pressure somehow if Im not shooting soon.

    Just hold cocking lever back and pull the trigger and let the lever back slowly. It will de-cock the gun.

    After shooting my last pellet from my fx streamline, I have to cock the gun remove the mag then hold the cocking lever and pull the trigger then my gun is de-cocked. Also I always have air in my gun no less than 150 psi.

    It is a good idea to always keep your pcp air tank charged with air. The pressure keeps all the seals and o- rings tight and keeps foreign particles or dust from trying to get it.
