A cocked gun that's not shot right away will pick up velocity every time when left for a minute or two. May not be enough to make a difference, but it does play with my mind.
Would be interested to know how this happens, as once it is cocked and sitting on the sears nothing should be changing, so the MV shouldnt change if its shot right away or if it has sat for a min or two?
