Like Mustangs and other things, everyone has an opinion. I think if you have never painted, get a top loader instead of an old suction type. Mix the paint in a cup and pour it in. I started with a suction and now I love my top loader. The only suction gun I have is only used for DP 90. If yuou get the feel for the top loader, you'll love it.
Once again, my arsho...opinion.
