If a ball valve is really slow imagine that, and becides how would you connect it to PVC. It could be great but not sure.

faucet valve as a pneumatic pressure release valve? seriously? You'd be better off using a ghetto ass 3/4" ball valve. besides sink valves are usually brass or stainless steel, how u gonna cement that to pvc? thread it?

i think you should read up on using a soleniod controlled sprinkler valve this is probably the most common valve used for pneumatic launchers.
