What both guys said above, if it starts releasing air without shooting, then you've got an issue. Don't cover the hole with tape or whatever other people do. If the feeling of the air bothers you wear gloves and you'll never notice it.
"Always mystify, mislead and surprise the enemy; and when you strike and overcome him, never let up in the pursuit. Never fight against heavy odds if you can hurl your own force on only a part of your enemy and crush it. A small army may thus destroy a large one, and repeated victory will make you invincible." -Thomas Stonewall Jackson
