need spray gun help

I have read alot and it has me confused even more. I am looking for a new gun or 2. I have painted as a hobby ,side jobs and a few things at my own shop. I am currently using cheap guns, Startingline ,one for primer and the other for color and clear,HF purple for primers and sealers, and HFpurple detail gun.
I am looking for a nice clear gun and maybe a base gun. Also I have been painting alot of or equipment trucks at work after the bosses noticed I could spray pretty well ( or better than the shop we where using).
So i would like a gun for my personal stuff but also one that will lay out the single stage metallic well . May be able to buy it with my company card. BTW I know that the startingline is a cheap gun but I can lay single stage very smooth with even metallic, and clear pretty good.

I have heard the Astro is good,Finex, I have heard that the FL3 is good but then heard bad things from both the jobbers I deal with. Both of them rec the Air Gunsa. But read bad things about them and neither have a demo for me. What brand would you recfor under $250

I've been using an Accuspray Model 10 with 0.9mm fluit nozzle, and #7 air cap, for about 10-12 years now, and won't have anything else.
