Be sure you buy an HVLP gun, as it will save on the paint cost (which is much higher than the gun cost).

I'm no expert, but as a beginning painter I used a Devilbiss Finishline 3. Nice thing is the gun comes with 4 different sized tips so you can shoot everything from heavy primers to clear coat. Check for it at TCP Global . It's under $250 including the shipping.

This is what I shot with the gun.

I need a new gun, and have been looking at the finishline guns very closely

I've had excellent luck with my Finishline 3 (though I'm now using an Anest Iwata) As cboy said, multiple tips available for whatever paint you are spraying. Mine came with 2 and I bought the others. Best bang for that dollar, IMHO, for a casual/occasional painter.

gun

I use a sharpe cobolt that has a better feel to it than my sata.Its less than 200 dollars. The finish line 3 is a very good cheap gun. Just use a 3.0 or smaller tip for clear coat

+1 for the finishline 3

I used it my first time painting last spring and It laid down primer, base and clear very well. I had zero orange peel, I didnt need to wet sand or buff.
If you look close the color match was a bit off, i used shopline for my patch panel. I blended into the door but not the deck lid. Was not too worried about a 1500.00 car, it was for practice anyway. I love my FL3.
