Could someone tell me if their is a difference here. The KG Gun Kote is a spray on application (airbrush) but not in an aerosol can like the Brownells. Have read a lot of good reviews about the KG but is it as good as the Brownells?

It is the same.

Sometimes you can get good results with the Brownells but I had some clog the nozzle.

I have seen a nice rifle done with it.

Brownells just buys the paint for KG and puts it in a spray can. Same basic formulation. If you have a compressor / sirbrush, I think the bottled stuff is better as they have to tweak it a little to make it aerosol friendly. One comment I would make is that all their "blacks" are a little more glossy than advertised. Go with one step flatter than you would normally get.

I had planned just to start small on a pistol or two. Any recommendations for a good airbrush kit if I have to work on a limited budget?

Harbor Freight sells a workable kit for $10 if you have a compressor. If you need a compressor I think the airbrush ones are $30-$50.

I bought a nice Badger Airbrush off ebay for $40 or so because I figured one refinish job I did on my own would certainly pay for it.

Are you married? If so you may want to work on the baking portion of the plan as that can cause relationship problems.

Took the plunge and went ahead. Came out beautiful in my eyes with the spray can Gun-Kote from Brownells. A real quick venting of the kitchen and should be no evidence left. Can't say enough about all the videos that are available on the Brownell's web site. The link below explained the procedure for painiting well enough even for a novice like me. Thanks for the info Ron, I like my Phoenix better every day.

I know I'm pissing in the wind and don't bother to tell me how you've baked 14 guns in the family oven and so far everyone is healthy.

Just don't bake those chemicals in the family oven. You can go to the local flea market and buy a toaster oven big enough to do pistols for a couple of bucks and not have to risk having some nasty stuff baked into your next dinner.

Suggestion well taken. Did the one and don't intend to do any more.
