how to get more than 1 shot (homemade PCP )

i think any 1 who has made a basic PCP rifle is sick and tired of pumping up their rifles ea shot... or at least i have :). I can't come up with a way to solve this problem without attaching my rifle to an air compressor. But the other day I was brain storming and I came up with an idea, what if we had 2 tanks, which were connected via a thin pipe so it takes a fairly long time for them both to arrive at the same air pressure.(refer to picture), yeah so dose any 1 have an constructive criticism to dish out?

try two tanks, one large and one small, and two valves. fill the larger tank and open the first valve to pressurize the tank. close this valve and open the other to fire.

I think you mean PVC*
PCP is a drug..
pre charged pneumatic :l
Man, that's what I thought when I read the title. I was thinking Angel Dust is dangerous enough without trying to cook up a batch at home!

wow rly? you though it was about cooken' up drugs too? gawd damn it...
Yep, when I think PCP, I think horse-tranquilizers, showboats, and needle fever. I like airguns, and would like to build an air cannon, but "PCP" means BAD drugs to anybody over 35 or so (I don't think the kids these days still do angel dust, thank goodness!).

"how to get more than 1 shot (homemade PCP )" lol i see why you sounded a little disappointed (jokes) but no, i think instructables would.. umm.. disagree with their users teaching others the art of drug making X'D

PCP, i found out, stands for many things. The meaning of the word which i intended to use was pre charged pneumatic.

I don't see any advantage to this, unless the trigger opens the valve for too long and you're getting a lot of wastage? A better trigger is the best solution, but in the absence of one this would help conserve gas. Although you'd slow your effective fire rate. L

Very true, and I thank you for your brain storm points But just letting you know, that is not the "trigger" i will be using, infact i havnt decided what i will use.. :'(
