Best exterior paint for spraying on asbestos siding?

We are trying to give a facelift to my son's small 1920's home located in Michigan. The new roof will be gray. We are thinking a lighter bluish gray paint with white trim/gutters. The siding is an old textured asbestos that we are going to paint over. My son insists that he wants to spray. I think it will only take 3 gallons of paint so price is not a huge object. Thinking Satin...? Do we need to prime first or is a combo paint & primer just as good? Paint recommendations? We are looking at Menards Dutch Boy Dura Clean (sale price $31.13 satin), Menards Forever Exterior Paint & Primer ($39.14 satin), Ace Royal Exterior Paint & Primer ($37.99 satin - buy 1, get 1 50% off), Ace Clark+Kensington Paint & Primer $47.99 satin - buy 1, get 1 50% off), Lowe's Valspar SeasonFlex Satin Paint & Primer ($40.98), Lowe's HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams Weathershield ($54.98), and Home Depot Behr Premium Plus ($42.98). Any paint and/or color suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Again, main concern is ease to work with, coverage, endurance - not price - I just put the prices in so that I could remember them. :) We are going to knock this project out this weekend! Thanks!
