Same here. Luckily she can't really tell one gun from another. So I try not to have more than 2 visible at any given time :)

My partner would say it is the most expensive hobby in the world, and I have to agree with her that sometimes it seems like an endless pit that swallows cash. But hey what can you do eh?

Well my mum thinks it's a rediclous hobby but that seem to be a reccuring theme with mums and airsoft :P

Some of the girls I know got pretty pissed because airsoft came over meeting up with them one saturday. :lol:

You want to try historical re-enacting, that's bleeding expensive, well the period I do is. I have spent at least a grand in the last year to get myself kitted out, let alone the tent, trailer, wife and kids kit and I still have more to get hold of. In the case of airsoft, its not too bad as I do sell guns I get bored of and reinvest the money in new toys.

Exactly what I do, I sell my current gun before I move onto the next one, I have to add a bit obviously. Although since I'm getting a 400fps DMR I'm gonna have to invest a bit extra in a back-up, never really seen the need before now. Plus my gf has now expressed an interest so I might have to buy her something (well, myself something "for her" ;) )

Having kept a running total of everything I spent on airsoft over the last five years, including weapons, ammo, site fees, gear, etc., it's running at over 5K at the moment, even allowing for the weapons & kit I've sold on when no longer needed / wanted. So yes, it can be a very expensive hobby.
