To expand on what Eeyore said.... I'm probably a good $1500 into airsoft not to mention I'm also a University Student (just drink less beer and spend less on things like girls and food (if you eat healthy and spend money on the right foods you'll feel good/energetic/healthy AND save a lot of money compared to people who eat ramen noodles and KD all the time)).
Also.... one of my projects (that I will start when I get some money) budget/financial projection is estimated to be ~$1300 (at lowest cost), possibly more depending on any snags that I hit.
