+1 on the PMC. Just a pretext to wear whatever you want, lol.
I played my first season with what a lot of people would call the essentials.
A good pair of boot from Military surplus
Tan/Digital BDU from Military surplus
Mechanix (Canadian Tire) gloves, can order directly from the website from cheap
180$ JG cheap rifle, stock, with a couple of midcaps
Battle belt which held EVERYTHING from mags to dump pouch (condor makes cheap stuff that should last until YOU decide to change your setup).
That's below 600$, not factoring taxes and shipping for applicable items. Not once did I not blend with everyone else, and I never felt undergeared.
** But trust me and everyone else, you will not stop there.
I now own two rifles, far from stock, two pistols, a lot of mags, a lot of costly gear, some real steel (mostly HSGI), stuff to carry all that, accessories (lights, optics), etc, etc.
I stopped counting after 2000, for this year.
