Total expenditure

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 have this list that I update as soon as I order anything (excluding consumables and walk-on fees). I just like to keep track of how much my stuff has cost overall. I've linked most things just in case anyone ever asks me how much something was or where I got it from.

I started airsofting in August 2010, so just over a year ago.

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.
