On topic, I'm hitting the $1,500 mark and still have remotely nothing to show for it. The whole $1,000 dollar starter budget only seems to apply if you're picking up a clone. To get a rifle that isn't a piece of shit you pretty much need to bump it up to $2,000. Personal opinion, of course.
Im calculating $750 for myself, and Thats with gear and gun. I spend 450 on a full metal with lots of upgrades.
I think where new players really rack up the money is ordering online. I got alot of my stuff used, and I dont look like Spec-Ops and w.e, but still have lots to show and definatly enough to play with
