The anvil pump is the reason I keep looking. I bought it with high hopes and getting that thing primed has been a nightmare for me. I read how with some pumps you have to build a bleed valve for air but I'm not getting into all that. A self priming one would be awesome.I've been shopping around for a good pump, myself. I'm leaning towards a Chugger pump, and maybe trying out the Anvil pump too.
