Check it before you go out into the woods is what I would do. Change the battery, give it a quick lube, and make sure it fires lol - or you'll be using your arm!

yeah, i think why i procrastinated it so long was because i heard that, on minis, high pressure tanks strip the threads and i was scared that if it did leak i would have to just let the air out until i could unscrew it,there fore wasting my precious air lol, BUT i did add oil to the threads and screwed it on and aired it up and it held air perfectly, on the bad side, could be my fault, some shots would just roll out of the barrel or shoot like 15ft but that's probably because the tank was unscrewing as i was shooting it, tightened it back up and it was back to normal, BUT with the tank all the way in it did seem as if i had to wait for the reg to fill back up, example, i shoot once, perfect dead on accurate and consistent with the last and next single ball, with 3 sec pause between each, but when i tried to walk the trigger the balls would travel less and less each shot. so maybe the dwell needs to be set or something?
