To me if you want to get a feel for spraying – just get a conversion gun that runs off your compressor.
If you know you want to do a lot of spraying in the future – then upgrade to a dedicated turbine powered system.

I only ever spray laquer and shellac. Upside is that the finish is always soluble in laquer thinner, even if you are a “little late” getting around to cleaning it.

This is the same gun Michael Fortune uses for shooting clear finish – it is 33 dollars – get the one with the pressure regulator on the handle!
