    When I was a wee lad, I would use straws like this for BBs. It made for a quick and easy reload of the ol Crossman.

    Thought: You might want to push out some air before the last "melt". Doing this without pushing out as much air as possible at ~1000 ft above sea level then going 'outback' around 7000+ ft above sea level will create quite a positive pressure that could eventually rupture your seal.


    But if this is just for your bug-out-bag you should be fine.
