Just curious… if you had one of these for quiet critter control in the yard, like a skunk, how long can they stay charged? I would guess at the high pressure they are they would leak past seals??
 
They'll last until an o-ring goes bad, which should take awhile. They're best stored under pressure to keep out outside air (humidity) from causing internal rust.
 
Mine held out for over a year before the o-rings started leaking. I haven't replaced them yet. I've done the research now I just need to do the work. It's a doable job for most anyone who does their own minor gunsmithing. One just needs to take care when putting things back together.
