    OK so I'd like to try out duracoating, any suggestions for an inexpensive airbrush starter set? Tips from those of you who have done it? Type of duracoat, are there different types? Thanks in advance.

    A lot of people start with a Harbor Freight airbrush set. I know that the more expensive ones cover a lot better. Mostly it is personal preference.

    That was what I was thinking, but I didn't want to waste money in the process of trying to save it. I'm going to do my lcp before I touch any glocks.

    Cerakote lasts much longer than duracoat. It might be more difficult to apply though.

    Yeah, I'm looking for something I can apply myself, or at least try to.

    I've done two guns, very easy to apply, how ever, note that I used to paint cars. I used a regular gravity feed paint gun for one and a air brush for the other, badger and pasche are waaaaaay better than the harbour freight ones. You can do two long guns with the small bottles. Practice on some thing first.
