Any damage by leaving Eraser air'ed up?

Thought I'd ask if anyones investigated this. I can't see any damage coming from an air'ed up but uncocked and unloaded marker, can you? A few seals will be under pressure, sure... but so what?

Reason I ask is I'm rarely through 30-40 paintballs on a powerlet per day. The Eraser is my sidearm only, for CQB and whatnot. Unless there's a dreadful reason, I'd like to keep it aired up (but uncocked and unload it), so if I feel like shooting a few clips over the next couple days I'm not wasting a powerlet.

Thoughts? Premonitions? Tips to win the lottery?

Update;

After looking at the PDFs and figuring where the pressure was going to be applied, and that Kingman gives us spare rings anyway, I figured I'd see what would happen if you DID leave your pistols aired up.

Results; Nothing.

Last Wednesday (21'st) I put a Crossman powerlet in the marker and aired up. I shot 2 clips with it, ran out of paint, and put it away cleaned (edit; and uncocked) but aired up still. Bought fresh paint today, and shot 5 more clips. Temp was about 90f, or 28c, both days. It seems the marker lost very little or no propellant while stored.

I also learned that with the marker cocked, you can drop 1 additional ball into the chamber and then slide your 9-shot clip in, giving you 10 shots in reserve if you use the marker like I do, as a sidearm or in CQB.

Hope everyone is enjoying their Erasers like I am.

I had mine aired up after 4 clips 7 days ago and went thru 3 more clips last night. She doesn't leak at all from what I can tell.

Another update; So far no trouble!

I've left the marker aired up (uncocked) for 10 days straight, and there's still lots of propellant gas.

Last update, cuz I think I've answered my question now.

Aug 14th I put a 12gram in. It's now Sept 12th, and it still shoots (just fired a clip out this morning).

Sweet.
