Agree w/above- Harbor Freight or local jobbers sometimes have a line called 'Speedaire" that is cheap yet good for around $65. I use Napa Martin Senior paint basecoat/clearcoat- easy for beginners and great for those who paint a lot also. (just hope you get a good salesguy!) Practice on small stuff first. Conventional guns take a lot less air, thus less cfm for the compressor, but HVLP will use a lot less paint and (I feel) take a little more to get used to. IMHO
