Cool i'm new too, i wouldn't say that you need one BUT i think that the pump only tells you when you press air into the tank, so yeah i'd say put one on if you want, but you don't need one!

Like Tyro said you dont need a pressure gauge on your cannon if you have one on your pump. None of my cannons have pressure gauges but my pump does.

If you plan on using other air sources that may not have a guage I would put one on but for just using a bike pump with a guage you probably wont need one. If you decide to get a guage you can just teflon the threads then use a tap and die set to make threads in the PVC.

i got a gauge that you plug into the schrader and it tells you how much its holding,this means you dont need to have a gauge tefloned in your gun :roll: i dont really see the point but it cost me $8NZD so im happy :D
