My180cc hatsan tank took 120 orso pumps to go from 2000 to 3000psi.  Very doable with a hand pump.  Your probably looking at 200 pumps to go from low to full.  Less if you are just topping off.  A good pump is key.  My cheapy Amazon $50 pump gave out and I got a full refund so I went the chinisium compressor.  Pumping is not all that bad.  Proper technique is key.  Like stinkajames says body weight works to your advantage.  A nice steady pace with a pause at the top and the bottom of the stroke.  Pump for 5 to 10 mins then let the pump cool down.  I found about 50 to 60 pumps would warm the pump up.  5 to 10 min cool down then pump again.
