Title: Bladder water gun with pump and quick charge system

Abstract: A toy gun having a housing is provided. A trigger is attached to the housing and a liquid storage tank is provided on the housing along with a pressure chamber having an opening which receives an expandable bladder. Also attached to the housing is a pump which is in fluid communication with the liquid storage tank. The pump is adapted to transfer liquid from the liquid storage tank to the expandable bladder in order to charge the expandable bladder with pressurized liquid as the pump is actuated by a user. In addition, a release valve is included for regulating a discharge of liquid contained in the expandable bladder. A path of fluid communication provides fluid communication between the expandable bladder, the pump, the storage tank and a nozzle assembly. The nozzle assembly is adapted for insertion into a quick charge device. The quick charge device is adapted to force liquid from the quick charge device and through the nozzle assembly in order to recharge the expandable bladder. Once the bladder is recharged, movement of the trigger displaces the release valve to regulate the movement of pressurized liquid through a part of the path of fluid communication for discharging a stream of liquid from the nozzle assembly.
