Can't really say you want to see what it's like having a pet, but only wanna spend the money to get a tomagatchi to see what it's like first.
A problem is that people mostly just don't want to spend that much money, and use the excuse "I don't wanna spend much in case I don't find it fun"
Then once anyone tells them the obvious; that cheap guns suck, more expensive guns -tend to be- better, and actually accurate.
But since they're being told this by people who have been in the sport longer than them; they pull the "oh, you're just elitist, now point me to the $20 metal AK47"
I spent quite a lot on my first gun recently, and never expected to spend under $250
