I am a recent startup and I can tell you, it adds up fast!
I went with some decent names in gear such as Propper, ESS (Turbofans), Pantac etc but cheaped out a bit on the guns until I see where this goes.. If you are so inclined to buy optics, extra mags, radios and the like I would conservatively bank on a $1000-$1200 for the whole enchilada!
If you manage to avoid online purchases (which may be difficult) you can save on the goofy shipping and customs charges.
