My opinion is to buy a compressor that is two stage. I would recommend a 60 or larger, gallon tank, also 5hp would be a minimum. I would also buy on that runs on 220 v as they run much cheaper. It is very tempting to try and save $$ on this piece of equipment. Don't.. it will be regretted. I would look at a farm fleet, or thiesens. Also other things to consider are a cast iron head or aluminum. cfm rating (15 to 17)and psi of 120 to 175 would be ideal. Do you home work and don't settle. You are young and will get a lot of good use out of a good comperssor and alot of greif out of a unit that is not ideal for your needs.
