It wasn't me, David, but I have successfully used a $2.00 "Duster" can operated by a servo before.  I taped the servo to the side of
the can and pulled on the trigger with a wire going to the servo horn. (My first one I used an R/C ball link but he wire works great
and is cheaper.)

I picked up a new duster at Fry's that has replaceable CO2 cartridges but I haven't hooked up a servo to that one yet.
