Question Paint and primer?


I'm looking to purchase some spray paint. I want the spray paint for painting plastics, metals, and occasionally wood.

For now let's say i just want to spray paint in one colour.

What type of spray paint should i use?
Just paint?
Individual cans of paint and primer?
Or a can with the combination of paint with primer?

I get the impression that primer isn't always used? Is this true? And if so, under what circumstances should primer be used?
