My m9 ptp (brand new) does not empty the entire mag on a full charge of green gas. I know cold weather can be a problem with gbb pistols. Im shooting it in 20-25 degree weather but im charging it inside at about 70 degrees. Even if i charge it for about 20 seconds it still wont finish the mag. Will this problem go away when it starts to get warmer or is there somthing wrong? I decided im not going to try using it anymore until its at least about 60 degrees out. I have 2 mags and have the same problem with both of them.

Try shooting it inside and see if it works better. Thats what I do. :) Just build a bb trap out of thick cardboard.

20-25 Fahrenheit is already below freezing.  Just because you charge the mag indoor, the mag temperature will even out with ambient temperature of the outdoor.  So it doesn't really matter at all and gas will not expand in the cold.  If you try other brand of gun, you probably won't even cycle after 5 shots in that kind of weather.

Being that green gas is more or less propain without the smell and a little silicon oil can you shoot more than a mag inside without it being harmfull?

no more harmful than shooting inside with a coleman canister.  Just don't smoke next to it and you should be fine.
