Ball valves aren't very good. They open too slowly to work well.

Sure, they'll lob your ammo, but at a mere fraction of the speed that a faster opening valve will.

if you want to buy a valve then just go with a sprinkler and modify it to be pneumatically actuated. Or you could buy a ball valve and a pneumatic ram to open the ball valve quickly.

The best valve is a home made valve. Make a piston valve. Best there is.
