Your buddy is totally right. We always force carbonate, so we blast it with CO2 anyway. But many times, you'll catch a leak that way. And we have some kegs that won't seal unless you pull up on the lid while blasting in CO2. That seats the seal, as your buddy describes, and they hold fine after that.
