Unless you plan to paint cars I would buy a cheap harbor freight gun. It doesn't atomize the paint as well as a expensive professional sprayer but with a 20% off coupon it's only about $16.00. I have four of them and I have painted anything from fine furniture to tractors with them. It's item #97855. I also have one of their gravity feed gun, better known as the purple gun I don't care for. It comes in handy for small batches of catalyzed paint where you need to use every drop. The siphon guns take a couple of ounces of paint just to function.

Anyone have any experience with the Harbor Freight 66222? It's the current version of the 43430 gravity-feed HVLP "Purple Gun" which became a cult item with DIYers of all stripes because it worked so well for the price ($30 to $70 depending on what the current sale is).
Supposedly a very good learners gun, being cheap, but capable of really good results.

I have a harbor freight 47016 gravity feed sprayer and I hate it. Much of what I hate about it is after buying it is I find I can't stand a gravity feed gun. You can't just unplug it and set it on a table. You have to have carry a special stand around with you to hang it up on. Then if you are working on something that the paint needs to be in the gun for hours there is no way to keep it stirred. All the solids end up in the nozzle. You always have to pour the paint out into another container immediately after using it and rinse the gun. Then with this model, the thing has a plastic cup on it that has a screw on cap like a mason jar that you can't keep paint out of the threads and is always glued shut. I finally set the gun aside and only use it when I need a small batch of catalyzed paint that I'm trying to use every drop. Otherwise I use one of my siphon guns.
