You dont need copper pipe. Here’s my set up, which has never given me an issue in years of use: 50ft 1/2” air hose connected to compressor reg and gauge, hose sits on reel. Have a 3ft long piece of 1/4” air hose, one to the gun, other end to gauge/reg/filter for the gun, which connects to the 1/2” hose. Tried it with the filter/reg/gauge right at the gun but it always got in the way – not an issue with the 3 ft 1/4” hose. I just hold the filter/reg in one hand and the gun in the other. Typically run the compressor reg at ~75 psi and never have an issue with enough pressure at the gun A 14 gal tank will have your compressor cycling a lot. You couls plumb in an extra tank using quick connects to use only when you spray
