in the future i plan to build a pneumatic that has a barrel of the smallest pvc i can find(1/2" so far)it will shoot either lead balls for muzzel-loaders or bunches of small split-shot fishing wieghts(for shotgun effect) i want it to be hand pumped and i want to be able to fill it quikcly. does anyone have experience with how much volume you can fill quickly with a small bicycle pump? how much pressure? the pump will be attached to the gun and should be operable from the firing position. i was thinking about some how adding a crank or a lever to the pump to allow a mechanical advantage. anyone have any ideas? essentialy it is a giant pellet gun. i plan to be the the first guy to hunt coyote or maybe even deer with a spudgun! is this possible?
