Reusable Burst Disc? Answered

So I had an Idea for something, but the problem is that it would need a burst disc or rupture disc, which have to be replaced after each use. What I was wondering is if there is some way to make them be able to be used multiple times, or something that could act like a burst disc (eg releasing a large amount of pressure very quickly) that could be used in quick(ish) succession?

I have only seen vortex cannons driven two ways - a push from a diaphragm (have you seen the "Airzooka" toy?)

or a small explosion in a chamber at the rear of the cannon.

The ball valve, if you can whack it fast enough, is pretty effective.

I'll keep that in mind, but is there anything flatter, becuase I'm using it to make a vortex ring gun, and I think a ball valve might throw off the airflow

I wouldn't have thought you needed to move enough volume of air for a vortex gun to need more than a movable diaphragm
