Do not over look the lower cost hand pumps, some of them are very good units.

I hand pumped for years and agree, it's not bad at all. Posture/technique and 120lb+ to drop on the handle with elbows locked. Have filled 500cc tanks from 0psi ( you wont hopefully be doing that) , took just under 500 strokes but that was a less efficient FX pump.  

 THE standard when hand pumps first hit the masses was, 50 strokes then letcool – w/handle up-.

I like to keep a hand pump around just to show new people it's not hard.  The Wife has re-filled her AA during a FT match with one, never complained.
