I had a gauge hooked up to the low side. the ones that hook straight to a can of Freon with a trigger. there was no can hooked to it because I was only checking pressure. My friend who was (helping me) was holding the gauge and pulled the trigger two times and I heard the rush of air.
So I am wondering - Did Freon come out or did outside air go in????

Freon came out. The system is pressureized and without a pressurized can on gauge out comes the freon in the system.

Re: Freon issue
There was only a small spit of gas and the other 3 seconds looked only like air. Does this affect the pressure and or gas to air ratio or it there no air in there and no matter what I think I am seeing if I were to squeeze the trigger the only thing happening is releasing Freon???

There's no air in the system, you lost refrigerant.

Re: Freon issue
Throw away the gauge you have and get a real professional gauge set if you'd like to further diagnose into your a/c.
