How Much Have You Spent?

26 posts in this topic

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'

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:

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.

Honestly so far: about £10 on some extra 58 water bottle pouches and £3 on a flecktarn Field cap for the summer and thats it.

 

However in the new year when I can fully kick start this awsome hobby it shall go up somewhat

- £130 on a CA Sportline M15

- approx £20 on a decent battery for said AEG

- £30-40 on a few extra mags

 

- £???? on a M1911 (however not sure to go for gas or electric yet

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 :)

if its a hobby, why care how much you've spent.

A great hobby! ...but expensive lol

 

I myself have taken up the hobby for about 3-4 months now. Already spent approx £1k

On guns, gas, bb's, tactical wear, and accessories.
