    Nobody. Do yourself a favor and spend $20 on a shock pump. You will have zero accuracy with any other type of pump.

    'regular' pumps pump too much air volume to be usefull as shock pumps.

    In a desperate situation it would work. but like probable said, you could not be accurate because of the large air volume generated with regular pumps.
