Laziness costs money and is not efficient but for a hobby guy, this might be okay but I doubt it. As soon as you have trouble with gun, there's no way to fix it. The throw away world sucks.

I think this is what was meant

I use hundreds of gallons this product < ppg breakthrough .... it has 43% solids by weight, and about 32% by volume .. usually anything much over that is considered hi volume solids and are in epoxy or mastic finishes. you will need the higher 85 cfm and up air capacity turbine and use the correct tip and air cap to do this...there are many good [guns] out there. this is a complete setup that want let you down. one funny thing is , when they first came out with accuspray hvlp units, they claimed you could spray latex wall paints! that was bs. they do have them now that are pretty good with latex paints. this is a data sheet on it. it actually uses an automotive resin and is water borne. https://buyat.ppg.com/rep_pafpainttools_files/Pghpaints/TDB/V51-410.pdf

One of my best friends can shoot candy and pearls just fine with a HF Purple Gun.
In fact he did so when his good big dollar gun was broken.
I have a simple Sharpe HVLP I use.

Funny you mentioned this, I wanted to paint my inside house doors (1990) with Benjamin Moore enamel. So thick I turned up the air valve all the way and nozzle full open to get it to spray. One 2-8 x 6-8 door took about 3-4 seconds to paint and 1/8 thick, lol, but flowed out like glass (laid on saw bucks). That system can put out heavy paint (like molasses) fast.!
