I Propose A Challenge! The "Running Out Of Gas!" Build Off!

I had an idea for the next build off, tell me what you think. The challenge is to build a .68 cal gun that requires neither a tank nor CO2 cartridges to operate. It can still use air as the propulsion, you just have to PUMP IT!! As for other ways of shooting the ball, anything goes! Two stroke motors, electricity, rubber bands, crack barrel pellet guns, gypsy tears, steam, pepsi and mentos, the options are limitless! The only stipulations are that it needs to be able to shoot between 225 and 300 fps and you know, have a flair of originality. If you wanted to do things the easy way you wouldn't be on the mcb custom build forum! I figured the winner would be chosen by vote, with a prize I would supply. So, whaddya think?

Coke and mentos powered gun. That sounds like a challenge

Now I'm picturing what it will be like to clean out a coke and mentos filled regulator...

You could do the rail gun using a sled to carry the paintballs.
Working out whether to have a single sled that returns after launching the paintball or multiple sleds that cycle through the marker would be an interesting challenge.

I was simply thinking of converting an old pump BB gun through a regulator. Nowhere near as sexy as the rail gun or messy as the coke and mentos but it is something that I think I could do.
