I'm new to compressed air and I was wondering if a Benjamin High-Pressure PCP Air Pump would be good to fill my 48/3000 psi tank with it? Because I don't live close to anyone who fills it. Help......

For the price of one of those, you might as well save up a little more for a shoebox compressor.

You could fill it, but it would take a lot of pumps :P

Elraido thanks for the advice about the shoebox. But I think I'm gonna go with pump cause I don't care about how long it takes me as long I get to play paintball

It will take you hundreds of pumps to pump it up.

You'll get it filled and get rippling arms once you're done so its a win-win

search for a scuba shop close by. they can usually fill tanks for less than $5. If there is one close this in my opinion is a way better option. Ive done the whole hand pump thing before and its not worth it

Over where I am there is tons of places that fill compressed air tanks, just search around and maybe you will find one.

That differs between areas. Some places are pretty barren for air fill stations. Example: if you live in an area far from a big body of water you aren't likely to find a scuba shop, and if you don't live near a paintball course you're SOL.

In the op he said there isn't anywhere near him that fills compressed air tanks.
