Everyone talking compressed air, but how to get there. 

Don’t kid yourself about hand pumps, especially so with a 3,000 psi airgun. After just a few fills, you’ll know why!

Causual shooters who have a nearby dive shop and/or a friend to fill their external refill tank can get by spending less than $1,000 depending on the tank size.  

Moderate shooters can get by with a Shoebox and average-sized shop compressor. Or, an Altaros and a LARGE shop compressor. Either way, you’re spending over $1,000, plus the external refill tank.

If you shoot a lot, an Omega Air Charger or similar might be in order. On average, prices start at about $1,500, and of course the requisite larger external refill tank. Figure about $2,500 or a bit more. 

And I must say, if I knew three years ago, what I know now, I would have bit the “pellet” up front, and saved myself a bunch of money! At least you bought the one airgun model which perhaps has more after-market accessories and upgrade than any other airgun. Like a TSS, bottle kit, etc. 

Just have a lot of fun with it, and end up living longer!
