Experience ? Very little since I bought the spraygun last summer. Before (here I’m talking lacquer), I used cans with more or less success on table radios since you cannot thin the lacquer as you want to. One sure thing, you don’t use lacquer inside, not even in the garage (unless it’s empty and the door open). I have a spot outside that I use when conditions are right. And you still need an adequate mask to protect yourself. And you’re right it is risky working outdoor.
