Sure it will, looks like a good pump.

All you need is about an hour between shots...

How mobile do you want to be?

Track pumps are the best thing possible but they're about the same size as a small cannon too. A foot pump collapses to a fairly small size and pumps to decent pressures...

I have a shock pump like that, they are good pumps, they can pump to high pressures easily but I think you would soon get sick of pumping it.

I once connected one of these pumps directly to a gauge with about 10cm of pressure hose in between to test my gauge. Even with such a small volume of air it takes about 30 pumps to reach 250psi. I also tried pumping a used 9oz paintball tank with it, it takes over 150 pumps to get 100psi.

Although the pump in the picture looks a tad bigger than mine.
