Was just wondering if it would be a good idea to leave my battery in my gun after playing. Like will it use up the batteries juice when it's just sitting there in storage with the gun off? I use a 2011 proto rail if it would make a difference any help would be nice.:)

It says in the owners manual that if you don't plan on using your gun for a month or longer then you should take out the battery. Don't really know if that helps you or not, good luck

Some guns eat batteries worse than others if you leave them in. I haven't ever had a problem with my Proto eating batteries. I leave the 9v in it.

 

If you ever have a gun with a blackheart board, then you can never leave a 9v in it.

Taking them out will save your battery. My brother-in-law and I both got a G-1 and he left his battery in and I took mine out, we didn't end up playing for half a year or so. When we did play, his battery was dead, and my own battery which was set aside lasted the entire day(and probably still has a decent charge).

 

Not to mention it's just good practice. Eventually you'll come to a point where you stop using the gun(maybe get a new gun or something) and just set it aside, you don't want the battery to eventually leak inside the gun and ruin the components.
