Hi all,

I'm pretty much back into the swing of the hobby now, I've even got that newfangled UKARA thing sorted!

Which led me to wonder roughly how much I had spent on the hobby in total since I started doing it.

The results were actually pretty frightening and I share them with you now, the list below is everything I currently and have ever owned.

(Prices all approximate going off memory for the old ones)

TM SR-16 200.00
TM M203 70
M203 shotgun shells 20
Glock 26c 40 (Used)
Glock 26 extended 50 round mag 50
Binatone radio 30
Headset for radio 15
Mid-cap stanags x 4 100
Hi-cap stanags x 2 50
Webbing (Various) 30
JG SR-25K 200
SR-25 Hi-caps x 3 60
TM Strike warrior 150
CA M203 (Used) 40
Madbull 204 BB shell 55
Reflex Sight 25
RIS Covers 20
Sling 10
Tac light 20
Face protection (maybe 5 pairs of goggles over the years, now using fan goggles) 80
Speed loaders (Various) 20
Electric speed loader (Don't see these sold anymore) 20
Chargers x 2 40
Batteries large x 2 small x 3 100
TM Discharger 15
Tracer unit (How expensive are these now!!) 20
Pro 90 'sniper' rifle (God awful budget bolt action thing I bought for my 'sniper kiddie phase, the shame!) 40


That's pretty much it I think although I have probably forgotten a few random things!

Total 1520.00

This is a lot of money and doesn't include any consumables or green fees!

My total does include two 'start up' phases though, most people buy batteries, magazines, charger etc just the once as we know.

I'm sure I've spent nowhere near the most so come on, how much have you spent? Work it out if you dare!

I've not even been playing a year and I've already bought 4 guns, one of which was a GBBR, which alone put me back over 1000, plus the other 3 guns, various services, skirmish days, ammo, gas, maintenance stuffs such as lubes and tools, camo and gear in general, accessories.

I must be getting on for nearly 3000 by now and like I said, not even a year, I started last November and became UKARA registered in February.

I'll admit I have a problem... My recent sniper was bought using my overdraft lol.

I don't know the exact figure and I don't want to know.

I've been playing 2 nd a bit years and spent probably in excess of 6000-7000

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