How long can I keep undercoat in my gun?

First let me say hello, I am on this site everyday and always learn a lot. I will be spraying Rustoleum undercoat on a lot of odd parts for the next month or so, and the biggest pain is cleaning the gun. Can I leave the paint in the gun and just seal the air vent? Or will that ruin the gun, it's a cheapie Sears general use gun, I've had for 20 years.
Thanks again for all your help

That is an enamel type primer. I have left similar paints in the gun for up to a week. Then you will have to re-mix the container. Don't let it set much longer or it will "Skin" over. Also remove the spray nozzle and clean it every time. Nothing worse than trying to spray with a hard piece of material screwing up the spray pattern..
