g,day everyone. so I usually don,t shoot my co2 guns in the garage in winter. but yesterday I thought I,d give it a try. I keep my Crossman co2 cylinders in my closet in the house. I brought a couple out to the garage -- turned my little heater on. but where I sit and shoot back by the door it,s not all that warm. so I put one in my umarex xbg. after shooting a few mags off. they seemed to work fine.but I stopped and took out the co2. I shook it and I could hear and feel that it was frozen inside. is this from being to cold in the garage.

It's not likely. CO2 has a freezing pt about -80C, so unless you have a really cold garage it's likely something else, maybe water, or a piece of O-ring, etc.
Often you'll see ice form around a CO2 cylinder especially if you rapid fire - but that would be water not CO2.
