Default Does anyone here Powder Coat?

I want to start powder coating my own stuff but need advice on what to buy. I already have an oven, air compressor, and sand blasting cabinet but I need a gun. For a beginner what would you recommend? So far I've been looking at a few of the Eastwood kits like this one:

I bought a cheap powder coat gun on fleabay a while back. I think it was Chicago Brand. It works just fine, and was a lot cheaper than the eastwood product. Although Eastwood is a good quality, I would go for the cheaper one unless you plan on using it a lot.

Somebody posted a homemade gun a while back here that I thought was cool so I bookmarked it. Found some pictures from somebody that built one (don't have that link though), and was getting decent results.

I've had good-enough results with the high-temp duplicolor ceramic paints.
