Hooking up a compressor regulator to a CO<sub>2</sub> supply would likely exceed its input specifications (800 psi+ when it's usually used at 150 psi tops), I don't think it would actually blow up but it probably wouldn't work very well after that...

Are you using PVC cement and primer? If you are using it correctly, your joints should be stronger than the pipe.

I'm getting the impression you ought to do a bit more research before physically playing air pressure and pneumatic launchers...
