He comes...posts...and ditches in 3 minutes.
Waddya thin? Should I help 'em? Ahhhhh....why not. Seems a decent enough fellow.

Relate exactly what paints you have, as well as your Room's fine points, PJ Model, throw, etc. Are there any Ambient Light issues?
Now I'm not sure it's what I should be using. This will me in my barn, on one wall. No windows to worry about. I usually have whatever light I need on, turn lights in that bay off while watching races.
2600 Lumen PJ screen is drywall.
Well I wanna know what's the PJ behind those Lumens.
Hey....you sound like one of my Good "Ol By neigh-boors. Been threaten' to do the same ever since I slipped a Panny 3000 and 11" Light Fusion into his Den 2 years ago.
I own myriad automotive HVLP guns but if MM happens to see this I'd love for him to confirm that I should still buy the Wagner for ease of use and cleaning. Like MM I have had bad experiences with older Wagner guns but reading through all the posts here it seems to be a vastly improved device. I'd also like confirmation that the old 0417005 model is still the implement of choice. (Gleem is sold out by the way, but looks like Amazon still has it).

Just found out my spay gun (never used) is a LVLP, not HVLP. I assume that is not (as) suitable? If not, would it be better to just buy the Wagner at HD (about $70 it looks like) or a spray gun to go with my compressor (plus pressure regular and rust filter etc)?
Yes....YES....YES By all means get a different Gun. Like this one.....;
A Turbine -Hose Fed Electric HVLP with everything you need to paint like a Compressor Fed HVLP on Steroids. But no Rust/Water Filter, tons easier to use , and as light as having a Quart of Liquid in your outstretched hand, and about 10 oz more weight attributed to the Gun itself.
Much preferred by all those who have gotten one, over any Hand Held Turbine.....for all the obvious reasons, including that the Hand Held costs more. Don't pass this one up.
But if you do, the Wagner Double Duty is perfectly suited to the task as well. However it's bulky, fairly heavy to some,(...the Motor is in your Hand...) and tends to make people's arm wobble and dip....even "Arrrnuld Types".
My point being I have both...had the WG-DD first...but as long as the "No Name" (Graco) is available, it reigns supreme for discerning DIY'ers
Is it okay to use a paint shaker rather than squirrel cage stirrer. Can't imagine one makes that much more bubbles than the other, but not sure.
Who is this Guy?
At the proper speed, few things blend colors-water-Poly-tints better than a Squirrel Cage mixer. Certainly not faster. For "Normals" who must individually add separately mixed in components, it's just plain Mo' better. For those who possess or have access to "Shaker Machines", well OK...as long as the Container is nearly Full so that indeed it's Paint being shaken, and not "Paint and Air", yeah....you can use it.
I guess. I stopped using "Shakers" at Home Depot back when it was MississippiMud-SE (Silver Edition) when the "Squirrel" caught my attention.
Finally, did my male short attention span miss the actual painting order? At first I thought you just mixed all the components together stirred it up and shot it. Now I'm not so sure.
Pretty much the same, only one's painting distance, speed, and paint viscosity have changed. Of course these days there are "Duster Coats" and shorter Dry Times (...if allowable...)
Myself, I have doubts about your Paint Choice. You need Silver Fire 2.5 4.0
Sorry if this is the umpteenth time for these questions.
Try to think in terms of "hundreds".
I did spend several hours reading through, but I have the aforementioned attention span problem - squirrel.
I hear/read the former a lot.....though almost always with the same conclusions. The "Squirrel" part....? Not so much.
And still you have the audacity to doubt the power of "The Squirrel" ?
Thanks for all the great info already here and any help you can give.
Yeah....I see that all the time too. Get's monotonous. Personally, I find that when someone just comes out and says, "I'm Hopeless! I'm Lazy! I have the attention span of a Nut Eating Rodent!" ...I find it refreshing enough to enjoy ignoring them.
But you....you already have the paints, so you get credit for tryin' to get'er dun.
Let's do some serious review and get you up and running asap.
