Every pro I know of uses a gravity-feed gun.

You definitely want an HVLP (High Volume Low Pressure) gun, as opposed to the cheap standard guns on the market. It does a much better job of getting paint on the target instead of everywhere else. Make sure you have the right size nozzles, etc. to be able to spray the material you want. Good guns can get very expensive very fast, but a cheap gun that gives terrible results is a waste of time and money. Be sure to use a filter on the air line or oil and water in the line from your compressor will mess up your finish. Also make sure your compressor can produce enough volume (CFM). Spray guns use a lot of air, and you can't spray well with an undersized compressor.
