Just wondering if anyone kept a tally on how much they actually spend on their hobby?

Does anyone still own and use the original kit they bought, or is a case of buying new gear or upgrading all the time if funds allow it?

So basically I just want to know what everyone has spent so far?

currently on same kit as when I started (1 year ago) and only due to lack of funds due to guns soaking up my funding

spent on guns 500? ish
spent on gear 100?
spent on ammo - don't want to know :/ probably 100
spent on visting sites 150?

yeah.
best thing to do is:

'never keep track of costs on a good hobby'

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

The majority of people I spoke to have spent +1000 on it, and some haven't been doing it all that long, but I notice most people have "spare" guns and surplus army surplus :lol:

yeah, but to be fair, the majority of people have jobs and thus disposable income :lol:

This is great. This type of thread was just started about a month ago on our local site.

So far probably around 900 pounds

  • Loadouts: 80's SAS Loadout
    Modern SAS loadout
    Ausi SASR Nam Loadout
    90's US SF Loadout

Considering I built one gun that cost 550 in total and bought my sopmod that set me back 650 I think I might cry if I really looked back through it all.

I am probably looking at about 3500+ now and I have been doing it 2 years.

Hmm I think it is best I don't dwell on this especially as I bought a Hurricane HK416 last week...... this doesn't look good does it.

marui do an electric one I believe
personally, I wouldn't get a sidearm for now, spend the money on mags, BB's and a lovely red dot

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

As I have been involved with the cadets for over ten years both as a cadet and an adult instructor, also involved with the territorial army most of my kit is multi roll multi purpose but all kit and weapons I'm looking close to 5000 in those years. Worth every penny

i think fishing would of cost a ###### site more!

The cost of professional rod's and even pole rods is far greater than an airsoft gun :P dont forget line, reels and bait!

Its a hobby who gives a ###### how much youve spent if you enjoy it :)
