Like Fitsman, I used a commercial airless sprayer. As I had ~4,500 sq ft of freshly-drywalled wall/ceiling space to prime and paint.
Worked well despite my limited experience with it...and I'll echo the previous comments about over-spray, need for good lighting, and being sure to get a mask.
If you do go this route, make sure you also use the right tip on the spray gun too. A wrong-sized tip could lead to an uneven coverage pattern and other headaches.
However, for primer on fresh drywall, you can't go too wrong. Your drywall will suck it up better than "ticks on a hound dog".:p
Go for it! Plus it's another toy...errr, I mean tool to master!
