I Have A Question

Throw two together in series, make an open|close to close|open contact trigger (relaxed: 1/0, fired: 0/1), and you have simple semi-automatic fire, care of Balthamelª. Throw in a regulator and you have consistent pressure in your shots, too.
Sorry if that wasn't the type of sprinkler valves you were talking about, I'm a neoteric dinosaur.
ª - I think I got my facts straight... If anyone has contrary, I'd love to hear it.

I have done this to my incomplete homemade. pic here.
The spudtech website is down now but it might be up again later.

The air is released all at once.
BAMF use all air for single shoot? or use few air?
As Zero mentioned, it would be trivial to set up a multi-shot system with a regulator, secondary tank, and momentary switch. You wouldn't even really need a second valve if the hose from the regulator to the low pressure tank was small enough diameter to minimize loss due to holding the trigger down too long. Overall it should be efficient enough to work well and very simple to construct.
Big Tank (high PSI) -> Regulator -> Small Tank (low PSI) -> Sprinkler Valve -> Barrel
