You may want to consider a short bullpup for easy carry. something like a Mutant Short .22 (good for 55 yards) or Wildcat .25 if you want to extend to 100yards. There are other options such as Vulcan etc.
Scuba tank or hand pump are the only two options. And you seem to have ruled out both. However if you have a scuba shop nearby then scuba tank option is the easiest, quickest and simplest.
