Is what I run. it is genuinely at least as loud as the horns on trains (I live 1/3 mile from a major rail line) and FAR louder than most 18 wheeler horns. I have a 1 gallon tank and a Via Air 450C compressor. I get about 1.5 seconds of FULL ON BLAST, followed by about 3 seconds of honk before I'm totally out. In virtually every case I've been in a 1/2 second BLAST is ridiculously to long, and you feel like you have over done it. Seriously, with great honking power comes great responsibility, you have to judge what all of the cars around you will do when suddenly there is a train in the middle of the road.
If you want one, TOTALLY get one, I'm not trying to talk you out of it, I just want you to realize what you are getting yourself in to.
