Ebay sells all kinds of them cheep, and most sellers will ship to you. When you get to ebay make sure your in your countries ebay, that way you get mostly your countries sellers.

Go to a bike shop and have a look around.

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

You didn't say what sort of pump you were after. Hand, foot, 12 volt, 240 volt. I got a 12 volt off ebay for about $60 which blows my chamber up to 35psi in about 8 seconds. That's enough to fire a tennis ball at about 35-40 mph / 60 kph.

that's a bit crappy...
you could look for high-pressure pumps on ebay. You certainly don't look for 60 km/h projectile but for a 500 km/h one.

Yeah, well mine was built for baseball practice for juniors. You know, serves a real purpose. When you bypass the pressure limiting circuit and let it go to 100 psi (about 20 secs) it would blow your _ _ _ _ _ _ _ head off!

I got a good one, go to super cheap auto, or something similar, and then find one with a steel barrel, and a red chamber, with a gauge on top, it only goes to 100 psi, but thats still good enough for a good shot. mine cost me $23 or so and I'm in victoria so yeah. have a look there

it should look something similar to this one
