    If you can't find an air compressor you are not looking very hard.

    Have you ever seen a 3-4000 psi air compressor? Unless you are a diver or fireman, I doubt it.

    Me too! Had a Charter 357 Target Bulldog. It was my backpacking/prospecting gun for years.

    I thought the OP wanted to power an air gun not a rail gun.

    Modern air rifles use high pressure.......as do many paint ball guns. Takes a multi stage compressor designed for it. These are very powerful expensive rifles.

    Yeah... Looking at the precharged pneumatics lately, I don't even want to think of trying to pump them by hand. o_O

    Years ago I owned a 4000 psi compressor. Used it for filling airsoft tanks. Wasn't cheap either.

    The OP could have been a tad clearer on that little tidbit of information. How many knew wtf a Bulldog .357 is in the first place?

    The more I look at cost of this stuff the more I like real guns.

    How about charging with nitrogen? Not 3K psi but 2500+ on a new bottle. Used to use them for charging accumulators etc. on demolition hammers.

    More expensive and un nessisary compared with a simple dive tank.

    What about just buying another used tank or two instead of a cascade? Fill 'em up on your off time. Or is it bad to leave them charged for a few days? I know nothing about scuba.

    All a cascade system is is several (usually larger) tanks plumed together. That is exactly what I would do.......pick up several scuba or MSA tanks to fill and refill my gun in the field. I don’t know what shops charge these days to fill them but probably not much. I haven’t had to take a tank to a shop in 30 years except for service or hydro. All that you have to do is look at the hydro dates on the tank to see how long it can be used. Hydro isn’t too expensive to have done but better if it doesn’t need it. Tanks can stay charged as long as you like. Have never had any trouble with that.
