Are you serious? (lol gotta live up to the sig). But yeah if your chamber is small enough a bike pump will work, but it will get old really fast. Save up and get a compressor or C02 setup.

lots of people use them. i use them when i only want one or two shots. it depends on the chamber how long it takes to pump and also what pressure. mine takes about a minute of medium-hard pumping.

on the bright side, the ladys will love the mussel.

Also foot pumps make the pumping alot easier. theres a good pump at your local homedepot. check the compressor isle you should see a pump make by husky. pumps great and its cheap to only 8 bucks.

They have portable electric pumps that run on a rechargeable battery which is what I sometimes use when I am tired.

If you need the launcher to be portable you could attach the bike pump to the launcher as I did. I have a small chamber and it takes me a 30 seconds to fill it up to 100 psi.

Eh, I would be careful if you are planning on buying one of those kinds of compressors. They die really fast when used to constantly charge up cannons.

I used a bike pump for about 4 years, until I finally bought a compressor to shoot all the strafers I had in my garage. :D
It's not that bad; if you're not in good shape, you will be after a year or so (especially if you're going 100 psi with a 5 foot 2" chamber).
