I bought a compressor today it plugs into your cars cigarette lighter and I've strapped it into the boot and ran the wires under the kick panels so you just plug it in up the front wait a minute or so then go check it, it goes really slow but the guy charged me half price for some reason so it was only 12 bucks.

I might get really good stirrup pump as well to use when I'm away from the carThey usually break before 100psi.

I've taken my car compressor to 150psi, but I buggered the gage when I tested sport balls and water bottles to their limit, that was sooooo funny.
Then the little thing that pushes the poppet of the schrader valve in snapped of.
Get a stirrup, car air compressors are worse then bike pumps and just as slow, they require more effort to get going then a stirrup would to fill the chamber with 100psi :P

I got the best stirrup pump today it was only 16AUD on special from an online cycling shop ('torpedo7') it's got a steel barrel and goes to 160psi, it pumps my piston gun to 100psi in about 6 pumps. I'll do a damage video of my piston gun soon.
