This is off topic:

So is it better to dry fire your center fire once, or to store it cocked?

as long as it is oiled you cant dry fire it as much as you want.

ok i did some actual testing, if u dry fire with absolutely NO oil your rear bolt and the inside of the reciever get worn down. if ur guns oiled, its actually good for it because it spreads your oil around.

Yes it is, and yes it can. With gas on; you're fine. Without; it can do things to the valve.

Dry-firing really doesn't affect a paintball gun. This holds true especially after it has recently been oiled, so long as you dont have the barrel on. However dry-firing does affect a real gun and could ruin it. So make sure when you do dry fire your paintball gun, not to fire it too much. Any more than 30-40 shots isn't a good thing.
woops.

I sent my gun to Tippmann once to replace the valve, and it came back cocked.

Just Uncock it by holding your cocking handle and fire. By holding it back sfter shooting it you can just slowly slide it forward. There no dry firing and no leaving it cocked.
