I would rather buy affordable guns and equipment and get good with those and enjoy the game.

Thats true, My point was simply that sniping is the most expensive route to go (except for maybe GBBR or PTW) and it generally not recommended as a weapon/play style for new players.
Also, for me at least, I told myself i would just buy cheap stuff for fun, but before i knew it, i was spending wayyy more then i thought i would. This summer was my first real season, and I'm probably getting close to the $1500 mark spent on airsoft... and I'm still a student >.>
