Need help selecting a paint gun

Anybody do any auto painting? I'm looking for a budget friendly spray gun, preferably $150 or less. The gun I've used in the past was just a cheap set from harbor fright that was less then adequate. I used to work in a paint shop spraying doors and wood trim, but our boss was cheap and we rarely had nice equipment, so I'm not up on what brands are decent. I saw this on summit, so this is kinda what I'm looking for

I've got no input for what is a good gun but save the harbor freight gun in case you want to spray under coating or bed liner.

We use Sata's at work ,but personally I use a Devilbiss Eastwood # 303742 for the bigger stuff, it's about $300, but Eastwood's Concours PRO HVLP Paint Gun 1.3mm is just as good but it's about $200 .

https://www.summitracing.com/parts/dvr-802343 one of the best deals out there right now.
