You should do this before you exit the field. Slide check back to the closed position. Unhook from the gun- but keep a firm hand on it. If it wont come off easy, turn your gun upside down and shoot the air out of the gun and then release the remote from the nipple. You should make sure your gun is free of air before you put your gun condom on. It is possible for the gun to remain pressurized—even after you have removed the remote.
If you do not have a slide check, then yes you would need to turn off the air at the bottle. Use great care when unhooking from your gun- some slide checks have been known to slide forward and gas the line and make it at like a whip.
Tuck your line into your harness when not in use to keep dirt out and to keep from getting hung up on things.
If it is leaking from around the nipple on the part that the ASA adaptor screws in, then the nipple needs to be re-tefloned. If it acts as if it is leaking from the nipple while attached to the disconnect, then the O-rings in the disconnect need to be changed.
When I die, I want to go sleeping peacefully like my grandfather did.......not screaming like the passengers in his car.
