I don't want one because PCP's involve more gear --the biggest of which is a SCUBA tank-- and complexity than I want to deal with.
Thanks for the info, there is a lot of "stuff" that goes along with one of those. The hand pump seems to have some problems I've read, seems like the gun is only half the expense involved.
