Yeh just go and get another pump, do what benstern suggested or could build a combustion out of spare parts while you wait for the pump.

You could open your fill valve at sea level, close it then go *really* high up and fire it :)

That or clench your fill valve *really* tightly between your buttocks...

jackssmirkingrevenge: That would only provide 14.7 psi max, not enough for most pneumatics to work.

So the obvious way to go is to get lung surgery and have them replaced my mechanical steel versions of normal lungs. DUH!

metos and coke in the chamber or other sutff that produces gas. Or just make a high quality pump for half the price of commercial pumps.

If it is an emergency car tire pump, and you were using it on a decent sized chamber, it stopped because it overheated and something melted.

Get a bike pump. Or, if you have some dry ice around, and the chamber is rated for at least 800 psi, use that.

I particularly liked the buttocks comment....

Just spend the 30-40 bucks for a high quality bike pump. Depending on the size of your chamber, a small bike pump might also be used with success and could be attached to the actual gun giving true portability, without having to lug a pump around seperate
