Definition: The act of readying a paintball gun to fire. It consists of moving the bolt away from the firing chamber and readying it to move forward when activated by the trigger. The first time a gun is cocked is typically done manually but subsequent cocking is performed automatically as part of the firing cycle of the gun.
