I've just got the gun, it's not even close to finished yet, and I'm easily up over $800 on it. I'm just going to start blocking out all thought of total cost about now.

Lets see..
- $450 for MP5 PTW
- $375 for Deagle
- ~$150-200 for battery and charger
- ~$50 for extra mags
- $120 for BDU and hat
- $150 for boots
- $50 for vest
- $20 gloves
- ~$60-80 for mask
So that's $1425 for a conservative estimate for when I just started out .

I'm too afraid to calculate how much money I've spent now.

Thanks for the info guys, especially on the goggles. I don't feel too bad about spending too much now either.

So far I've bought

VFC gun
battery and charger
552 HWS
4X magnifier QD, FTS mount
M6X torch/laser
3 X G&P 130rd midcaps 2 full metal and 1 Canadian Forces Thermold
3 point tactical sling
Crossdraw Tac Vest
Cadpat BDU (Boonie Hat, Patrol Cap, Combat Smock, Combat Pants, Ninja style mask)
Rifle Bag
Drop pouch (fold-up, molle)
King Arms 200 BB speed loader
Collapsible silent BB carry bottle
3500 rounds TM .2 BB's

Just over $1200 so far including shipping. As lots is still in transit I may yet have some import fees to pay, but haven't had any thus far.

Haha, i know. I havent gotten to that point. Yet.

OP, i would suggest BB Bastards instead of TM, they are the best of the best, and you support a Canadian retailer. :lol:

I can not remember exactly or even ballpark how much I spent on gear alone but I have owned
-3 vests + 2 chest rigs
-2 sets knee guards + 1 pair elbow guards
-1 pair gloves
-1 pair boots
-2 BDUs
-2 holsters
-3 goggles, 1 shooting glass, 1 full face mask
-a crap load of pouches
-2 gun bags
-1 helmet
-3 slings
Yet I am still planning on another BDU and a SERPA holster. Probably in the $1200 mark.

I wont even mention how much ive put into this sport. I highly advise you other guys keep your mouth shut about your investments... Unless you like getting your name put up on a shopping list for thieves.

This isnt an E-Peen contest after all.
