If you just plan to paint one or two cars then get the HVLP "purple" gun from HF but if you want a gun to use regularly, and one that will last, get an IWATA or Sata but these can be pricey. They do a REALLY good job and the price (around $400) will be off-set by the paint they will save, the cost can actually be recovered in as few as 3 or 4 over-all paint jobs when using a quality paint. Even using the cheaper grades of paint you will still recover the cost in a fairly short time. You can find guns that will do a fantastic job (The Harbor Freight gun for example) of laying down the paint for less than $50 BUT these will make a lot of expensive over spray which will result in you spending the same amount of money in a short time that you would have if you had of bought the good gun-but you still will not have it!
