paint gun problems

I am useing a finish line primer gun, and im trying to spray epoxy primer.
I shot the door jambs first and the paint came out almost like spater.
and just doing the engine compartment jambs door jambs and trunk lid and jamb took 1000 cc of product for two coats. the first coat came out spatered. I started off with 10 psi with a large spray patern, the second coat went on fine but i turned down to 8 psi and it sprayed nice enough to fix the first coat. now im getting ready to shoot the rest of the car and need to know how to not have the same problem. I did not reduce the epoxy/cat. mix for the jambs.
should i, I felt that that much product was insane for that little area, the guy at the paint store said that i should be able to get a sealer coat for bare metal and a sealer coat for the urathane out of the same gallon? should i reduce, increase psi ????? im useing ppg omni epoxy with the proper 70 deg cat.
any help would help me out a ton.
