My spending so far:

CA M4: $600 in total now
BDU's: $150
Boots: $70~
Kneepads:$15~ (Discounted)
Mags:$50~ Got local, discounted
Asssorted goods(BB's, charger ect.):$200~ and counting

I'm probably past $1000, but the first I played was with about $550~

Just don't ever get to looking at custom pistols...I have made that mistake and I feel my wallet screaming no no no!

This depends on a lot of factors : the bdu, aeg, etc.

for instance, my first gear was a flectarn bdu with the matching chest rig cost me about 150$ (I bought it at R3CON1's store); then I spend 600$ on a G&G AK-47 with 4 mags and 2 batteries. for goggles, I used shooting glasses (15$ and very sturdy construction) . I also owned a WW2 Bulgarian steel helmet which I just put an helmet cover on (5$). For boots, I just used my regular hiking boots. I spend 150$ for a TF-11 as my GBB side arm.

Overall, my first kit cost me roughly 900$ and it was fairly decent.

For my second kit and main kit, I field a Waffen SS NCO impression which was much more expensive (After 2 games, i talked with a guy fielding a waffen SS impression and I succumbed to the temptation ): my impression is complete and costed me around 1500$ ( 500$ for my mp-40 and 9 mags : 100$ for a m42 steel helmet, 250$ for the bdu, 50$ worth of insignia and decals, 300$ of field gear (gas mask canister, mag pouches, ss enlisted man belt, bread bad, shovel and carrier set, a nva canteen) : 70$ for a pair of NVA jackboots, 40$ for a deactivated m24 grenade. 150$ for the winter parka

for 1.5 K, i have an almost complete impression of good quality (missing a zeltbahn, a A-frame assault pack and a frame bag)

1000 is good start

total I pay in (not accurate)
$100 Tf7 gun
$170 Kraken
$100 ACU plate carrier(XT 10% from 110)
$100 ACU BDU
$40 Laser red dot
$120 two scope(1 scope get 10% from 70)
$50 Tactical light (XT 10% from 65)
$75 helmet with ACU cover
$25 full mask
$25 glove (xt 10% from 30)
$50 ak rail kit
$100 4x Mp7 mag

About $900 in Asset for me so far
Expense will take it up over $1000 due to
battery for scope,
battery for light ($6 for goddamn battery, why they can't just make tactical light that use AA or AAA)
drink aftergame

XT membership $200 I believe it pay itself because I play total 10 out of 12 free game($18 each) plus get 10% discount on stuff
my english is bad. however, It don't make up different on your ignorance.

First AEG- $200 - $300 (you can use it as a loaner later, when you get something better)

Sidearm- Optional. $40 for a springer, or $100 for a basic gas pistol (Canadian Tire has some that might do it) or $2-300 for a decent GBB.

Uniform- If you already have some decent, earth toned hiking gear or something (I had some old combats left over from my cadet days) then nothing, but if you need to buy a uniform, say $100.

Boots: Once again, if you have decent hiking boots then nothing, but if you want combat boots then like $50 to $150, depending on quality.

BBs- 4000 .20/.25 gram bbs from BBBastard: $20

Mags- if you highcap it'll come with the gun, otherwise $50-100.

Shooting glasses- $20 (make sure you test them before you use them).

So, if you're frugal and lucky you might get away with a $300 kit (if you already have some workable boots and clothing) or about $500 if you don't. Then after you play a few games you'll realise you want a better gun, a themed loadout, etc. and then you start forking out the thousands...
