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.
Eye protection, eye protection, eye protection. Boots are not mandatory, but it's better to have something protecting your ankles if you are going to run around all day, rough terrain or not.
Gear is up to you really, but if you are renting from anther player, they might be able to provide you with (some) matching gear for the gun(s).
