Nope. We weren't allowed to touch the markers. I have a bad reputation of sabotaging the markers of cadets. And my antics are well known with them.

The co-op student at the local shop tried using my VM at a big game a week or so ago... at 10C/50F there wasn't enough tank pressure to keep the valve sealed properly though the gun was sorta cycling ok. It wouldn't shoot properly on an HPA tank at all either. They're pretty much strictly fair weather guns unless you're running liquid.

Digging back through the memory banks I recall putting my trucks windshield defroster on high heat, and setting all the 7oz tanks up there for a while.. In hindsight I'm amazed we lived to tell the tale.

Its a pretty scary thing when you are driving down the highway and suddenly have one of your tanks blow its burst disc. For a few seconds, you have no idea what is happening, and swerve around the road yelling "what the feck?!?!??"

Kids today miss that experience. Most co2 tanks get underfilled, and most tanks have 3000psi burst-discs instead of 1800psi.
