1 shot air loss

I have a Tippmann A-5, and when I cock it, it sort of lets out a "fart" of gas and I have to re-cock it. what wrong?

I'm no professional, and this may not be the cause, but it sounds to me like you have a blown o-ring. Your marker isn't getting enough air to re-cock because it's losing pressure somewhere. The farting sound is likely from slipping or rubbing. Have you recently oiled your gun? Perhaps you overoiled it in a vital area?

Blown oring could indeed be a reason. Farting is also a sign of low pressure or lack of lubrication. Refill your tank/lubricate your parts with paintball or air tool oil.

I forgot about the low lubrication. Der.
