    I was overseas for a couple years and just came back to Europe and at the same time found some 50+ montana cans I had nearly forgotten about.

    First off half are new other half average use to nearly empty.

    So far I've tried using a couple of them and they've all clogged up the caps right away while at the same time shooting out this gunk like paint.
    I remember some montana colours used to do that but can't remember which colours ( White? )
    Well some after a little while let paint out ok and others clogged up permanently.

    What should I do to prevent that to happen to the others?
    Try and use a fat cap on first use?
    Shake the cans longer?

    shake the cans like a bitch. I mean like 10 minutes of shaking. Or you might of lost pressure in the cans. Shake them for ages and ages thats my only advice.
