You can also feed your hand pump with compressed air at 20 to 30 psi.  Each stroke will require a little more effort but the total number to fill your tank will be GREATLY reduced.  I have been doing this for a couple of years now and it really works.  Others have done this using a small compressor.  I did it a little differently.  I use a 5 gallon 150 psi air storage tank with a regulator and filter on the output. I also put 5lbs of desiccant in the tank.   I charge the tank with a compressor – this removes the majority of the moisture from the air – then the compressed air sits in the tank with the desiccant.  I have never had a problem with moisture in my guns using this setup.
