I don't know for everyone but personally I think the plate carriers look tacticool. I'll definitively not start with one in the beginning so I'll look for something on the cheaper side.

Good advice, I think I'll start with nothing but the highcap for the first few games I play. I'll continue to look for maybe a belt with a 2 mags pouch and a dump pouch so I can carry a couple of midcap mag without spending too much. It will allow me to see others looks and talk with people so I can see what are my options and what I ultimately want to go with.

I would say that I am the opposite of an impulsive buyer. Always reading reviews, trying to verify if the deal is worth it, changing my mind a hundred time, and finally buying it (or not) after hundreds of hours of deliberation. But in this case looking at all the rifles, all the gears, and all the accessories, I wished I could have a few thousands bucks to spare and just go all in in this! Unfortunately I don't and will go step by step.
