cool, So i'm a bit confused here should you tell them or should you not tell them what your making if they ask? It seems a bit like a guess game.
I want some 15bar that sounds like teh shi', is it easy to find?

Will a Pneumatic at 200PSI shoot farther then a Combustion using Hairspray?

a pneumatic at 100psi will easily,15 bar is hard to find, if they ask and you tell them they still have to sell it too you.

The ones I've seen: 6.9 BAR, (100 PSI).

Even then, they tend to fall apart.

I would go for regulated SCUBA air if you plan on these high pressures.

With SCUBA, you can go up to around 204 BAR, (3,000 PSI), with a lower pressure tank, and up to 340 BAR, (5,000 PSI), with a better tank.

Metal pipe can commonly have ratings up to 3,000 PSI, but threads reduce that rating by half.
