CO2 much better than a 12v mini compressor. Depending on the size air chamber in your gun, you would just have to buy a bunch of tanks or just 1 big one. Although you have to pay to recharge the tanks it is really cheap, usually around $5-6 for a 20oz tank which last along time. Here is a link to what i use on my air cannon and it works great. http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200385985_200385985
