I'm all ready to pick up a Benjamin .22 Discovery and wondering if I should order it as a package with the hand pump or no......Is it kind of tiring to pump it up every 15 shots or so to keep the fps stable? I will be doing a lot of target practise with it... :D

You could buy a couple of these used 48ci tanks for $25 each: http://www.gqpaintball.com/store/p4/Use ... _Tank.html
They may be regulated to 800psi so you'd have to choose whether to remove the regulator parts and make it a straight fill station tank or buy a couple 1800psi regulators off aliexpress. New Paintball PCP HPA 4500PSI Compressed Air Tank Regulator Output Pressure 1800PSI

(from AliExpress Android)
That is, if you have a cheap source of air at a paintball or scuba shop nearby.
If you want to use a hand pump, the cheap Chinese pumps work well off ebay or aliexpress. According to several guys that have Benjamin and even hill pumps, they claim these work even more efficiently. Mine has worked well. That's what I've been doing, pumping every 20 shots or so[emoji846], gets kind of annoying when doing long shooting sessions though!

Mine too, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and efficiency and no problems to date, thought granted I've only had about 10 sessions with it up to 1200 psi.
