You can rent crimping tools for $10 everywhere. Ask a few friends, you would be surprised how many people have them. I have three if anyone near me wants to use one, including a small 1/2" only one that gets into fairly tight spaces.
I really an not comfortable with using those Sharkbite connectors, but as long as they remain accessible, it would be easy to fix in case something went wrong.
