    Yes with the pump up pneumatic (p.u.p.) leaving two pumps of air creates just
    enough air pressure to help keep seals working as they should.

    I like my p.u.p. but HATE pumping 100 times to bring it up to the 3,000 p.s.i.
    Newer ones require 2,000 p.s.i. and achieve the same velocity, shot count, etc.
    Because of the pumping deal I use my break barrel, and side cocker springers most
    all the time.
    I love airguns for a couple good reasons and one bad one.
    The good: Quite, cheap to shoot, never been a shortage of pellets.
    The bad: I short range. 25 is best and 50 a real stretch for taking small game.
    Must cock the barrel, or side lever for each shot and manually put pellet in
    the chamber.
    Though to do in winter with cold fingers.
    I should get a pellet pen. I think it's a tool that inserts the pellet square with the bore.
    I need check on that.
    I guess I'm one of those rabid second amendment gun nuts.
