Eh, it was hard to understand what you were saying, but its perfectly fine to turn on the gun and make it click when there isn't air or paint.

Yeah I think he means just turn it on and fire without any air or paint. That won't do any damage except run down your battery.

Unless you do it constantly for hours(which would wear out the noid), then you should be fine.

in the manual is says in bold letters "do not dry fire"

dry firing means to cock the bolt and pull the tricker with no CO2 or air, well i think so

i thought that dry firing was Co2 only

Yeah, dry firing is firing your gun with Co2 only. Firing your gun without Co2 would just be clicking the solenoid.

yea it should be fine just dont do all the time. it will wear down your noid.

Just don't so for an extended period of time without a break. The solenoid will heat up and swell.

i click it (click the noid) whenever i'm bored and by my paintball stuff. lol. it's just so fun :p

yeah deffinatly don't let the striker slam against a non gassed up valve. you can deffinatly break you're valve that way. Firing without paint is ok for it though, just normal wear and tear there. I find i'm alot slower dryfiring than just clicking the noid

Also you need to practice pulling the trigger in shooting possitions, just sitting on you're couch doesn't do much
