How much air do you all leave in your Discovery when stored or just not shooting it? Do you keep it fully charged and ready to grab quickly in the case of that pest or varmint showing itself?

I leave mine ready to go. That way I get to shoot 30ish shots before I have to pump it. I would procrastinate if I had to pump first.

If your talking long term, give this a read. When storing my PCPs over a few months I do what Tim recommends but if Im going to use it once a week or so for pest popping I leave it charged.

Nah! Just while you're not using it at the moment. Just kind of in between pests,hunting or weekend shooting outings.

I have left mine charged for a month, give or take (had to keep it handy for starlings,gracks that raid my bird feeder or coons that try to enter my chicken coop) it hasnt ever hurt mine. But when I put them away over the winter months I shoot the pressure down. If I need a quick AG fix and the PCPs are put to bed I reach for a springer..

tend to put it away with a little mroe pressure than my low/refill point. Call it 1100psi. That way, if I just haqve to grab the rifle and shoot something, it has a couple of "normal" shots before falling off the pressure curve. If i'm not in a rush, will pump it up to it;'s upper setting before starting a shooting session.

hasn't done it any harm that I can tell to be stored for months at 1100psi.
