Help with Urethane primer

Im a paint and body novice so I apologize in advance if this is a stupid question.

I purchased a Keystone product called ProPrime that is allegedly a quality 2 part high build urethane primer. I tried spraying it with a cheap Ampro hvlp gun with a 1.4 tip and got a terrible texture. I literally could not make it run.
Next I assumed my tip was to small and tried it out of a cummins tool sale hvlp gun that I have for spraying tractor paint. It has a 2.0 tip.
This gave me more of a fan but actually gave more texture as well as boogers and strings.
The stuff seems to want to plug up the holes on the sades that set the fan position.
I have tried every adjustment on the gun from entirely one way to the other.
Tried air pressure for 10 to 50. Nothing works.
I believe this stuff should be reduced however the supplier(keystone) says no.

What say you guys? I really have to get this jeep done and this is holding me up badly.
