You are removing it from the tank? I would just use the valve AND the tank for everything.

I'm guessing it has better flow than a blowgun so if your pilot volume is low then yeah, why not.

The fire extinguisher i have is a Kiddie, and once you fire it, it leaks air, you can hear it coming out... Would it do that if used on a gun?

depends on where it leaks...If it is just straight leaking out of the valve, then probably not, but if it leaks at the base(where it is attatched to the extinguisher), you can seal it with PTFE tape or, as has been suggested, epoxy.
