I compared it to my LPH400, and the Zhipp uses less air.
I'm not saying it's a better gun, but it is a surprisingly good gun and uses less air than any gun I have short of my Sharpe Platinum. Plus it's about $50!!
Thanks, i'll difinitely look into it

When you say 30 gallon compressor I have to assume it is a low CFM so I am afraid when your friend starts on the outside of the car he may have serious problems unless he paints the car in parts and not all at once. To better help decide which gun you need forget about gallons and use CFM as the guide to how much performance you can expect from a compressor since tank size really don't mean much in spite of common belief, it is how much air the motor/pump (CFM) produces that matters. There are several guns around, some already mentioned, that should work just fine with the compressor you have so I would suggest you look for one that requires about 6 or 7 CFM and no more than that, the 43430 needs about twice that much. A bigger compressor would be the best way to go but with a little planing and air management along with the proper gun you should be able to get by ok.
Thanks oldred. Now i have better idea of what's good to get. Also thanks for the tip. I will take that into consideration Thanks everyone for you input
