So I got a bike pump:
The bike pump
Product description: 6063 aluminum barrel with two tone T handle for better grip. 7" alloy barrel with dual action pumping for higher efficiency. Reversible Schrader/Presta thumblock. 120 psi.

I was wondering if there are any specific brass fittings that can be used on this pump for 1/4 or 3/16 ID vinyl tubing?

EDIT: Sorry, Meant 1/4 Outer diamter and 1/8 Inner diameter.

Seriously, no penis pumps or dildos on your Nerf blasters.

McMaster-Carr sells schrader valves with a 1/4" ID tubing barb on the other end. The part number is 8063K39.

At the pressures nerf guns run at, there's really no reason you should buy expensve fittings for bike pumps. I've consistently taken tanks up to 60 psi with hornet tubing stretched over standar vinyl tubing (for firmness) without even any adhesive.

I've tried wrapping Etape around some 1/4 OD vinyl tubing and gooping it to a previous bike pump....Wasn't successful.

That's not suprising, e-tape is not a good way of widening tube/piping that will be under pressure. Hence why I stretched the hornet tubing.

Bah, I've seen Zorn's BBBB Writeup with the bike pump, what did he do? I'm planning on using attatching some 1/4 OD Vinyl tubing with super glue at the tip to attatch it to the pump, and then use goob to secure and filli it in the hole.
