As tempting as it is to jump in feet first and start spending lots of dough on cool gear and big guns, I'd prefer a more disciplined approach at first...at least till the bug sets in and i'm harvesting my own organs for airsoft funds.
water, water and more water. if you cant afford the high end camos just go to a surplus store. they usually have some woodland stuff for not to bad of a price which,will do till you can get some nicer stuff as for protective gear what i did for my first few games was buy a paintball mask then just take the goggles off and use them and threw out the mask part. i have seen however some people cut out the chin of the mask so they can aim better. i would HIGHLY recommend some sort of padded glove a shot to the hand/finger fucking kills haha
