CO2 horns exist?

I just bought an Innovations Second Wind MTB inflator with some 16g non-threaded carts. and was wondering-

Is there an air horn that could use these same carts., and if so, can anyone suggest where to find one?

It would seem logical to have a dual-purpose for the carts. if possible.

Thanks.

you could probably convert an air zound if you were so inclined.

They won't work with any horn head as the thread connection is too large.

The boat store by me has them with a schrader valve on the bottom, you could just use your inflator to fill the horn.

Well, I've got the non-threaded carts..

I was thinking there might be a horn, with a similar/compatible design to the air pump I bought (6 in canister in which the cart "drops" into) that could/would take the same carts..

..would've been convenient..

Thanks for the suggestions on the boat horns/boat supply shops.
