Default Hole in the outside unit

Hi, my name is steven, i was throwing my knife into some wood in my backyard and it bounced off and hit the coil on the outside unit and punctured it. the hole is small, and all the gas leaked out. so i turned the breaker for it off but now i need to know if i can repair it and how.

Yes it can be repaired but not a DIY job. Call an HVAC Teck. the hole needs to be silver soldered, system evacuated and re charged. Consider this one of life's lessons that you wont forget.
