air ride suspensions?..i..e.. airing shocks+tires benifit

after reading all the answers to more teck. questions i would hope some of you old school riders would have an input im still wondering if anyone rides with an air-pump with enough p.s.i to do shock pressure adj. on the trail or if you use your hand i e foot pump( now capable of up to 300 psi)and do your adj. at home? or do the packable pumps stack up for trail use?

even if i had a hand pump capable of such high pressures, i would not use it for adjusting the shocks because of the lack of precision in fine-tuning. it's worse when your fork legs each have air springs and they need to be at the same pressure.

A shock pump costs like $40 and it's compact enough to fit in your pack. Get one.
