Wow, PBTP has the gun/system for $100 more than Columbia. I've followed all the posts on the various forums and so far I fall on the side of Brian (if I remember the name) from Columbia coatings. I think the poor guy got the shaft on this one.
I don't really have any issues with my Eastwood hobby (hot-coat) gun. I have done 3 coats with it cold on thick metal. I'm tempted to pick up one of these HS guns though. I don't think I need it since I don't really plan to go pro or even do THAT much coating for me and my friends. But honestly the story behind it is kinda cool so it will probably be an interesting page in the history of small shop/home powder coating. "the great hyper-smooth gun war of 2009"
Of course there are these rumors of Eastwood coming out with a new adjustable gun too that make me want to hold off.
