longer barrel, pressure rated fittings and pipe, perhaps a chamber fan or how about a propane meter.
or better yet a combo of all of the above

longer barrel, metered propane, chamber fan, ball valve or other quick way of venting, and a good breach.

This one looks pretty fun.

edit: damn heimo haha beat me to it

You don't need a compressor, you can use a bike pump. However, a compressor does help a lot! If you live in the US, you can get a $40 air compressor from Harbor Freight. For first pneumatics, I would suggest a modded sprinkler valve, or if you're ambitious, a piston valve.
