To be honest,pumps aren't always the best tools when filling from empty, is air coming out of the barrel, did you cock it first, and not being rude, did you measure the pot ?

You need to fill from a divers bottle when the gun is empty. Cock the gun and give the gun a quick blast from the bottle. This will close the firing valve down onto it's seating. As long as you don't fire the gun down to empty you will be able to use your pump in the future.
If you don't know anyone with a bottle take the gun to a gunshop for a fill. Alternatively if you live in Northumberland I'll do it for you.
