Accurate doesn't matter, it needs to be consistent.

Does it really matter if you have 90psi or 92psi or 87psi?

You should experiment and find what works with your weight tires and road conditions.

A few days ago I stopped by the LBS to have fresh sealant added to my tubeless tires. the use a compressor and I told them to put 60 front and 65 rear. I rode another 30 miles and felt the entire time the tires were hard. When i got home I took some air out and pumped them with my pump to 60/65 and went for a 5 mile ride. They then felt normal.

Not sure which was the more accurate pressure, but my pump is consistent with what I normally use.
