All that makes me think is I only need to hit up one house instead of three.

On topic, I'm hitting the $1,500 mark and still have remotely nothing to show for it. The whole $1,000 dollar starter budget only seems to apply if you're picking up a clone. To get a rifle that isn't a piece of shit you pretty much need to bump it up to $2,000. Personal opinion, of course.

Son of a bitch I walked into that. I'll be back in 18 hours after I think of a witty comeback.

Lol wow, how did you end up spending so much. I probably spent just under that and I got a LOT of good stuff. :P

Just received a lot of upgrades for my gun as well that include a Prometheus tbb, 2x guarder rubber, suppressor, tac grip, and eotech clone. And yeah, I have boots, acu pants, vest, 3x magpul pts pmags, swat boots, goggles, TAC sling, kneepads, gloves, charger, battery, 470rds bb loader, and my vfc scar-l black.

I am not familiar with airsoft.

What my question is, does the element of surprise work on a typical airsoft match?

$700 went to my VFC SOPMOD with battery and charger shipping and taxes and $600 for the rest.

I have a nice loadout for it, but just now Canada Post attempted to deliver my 4x magnifier to the wrong address according to tracking. They say I wasn't home and left a notice card, lol. They didn't leave the notice in my mailbox and I was home so now I have to go to the post office tomorrow with my ID and hunt it down. Meanwhile, I have incoming packages still and don't want to leave, ugh!

I got my 4 buddies in on it. Combined, we have probably spent around 3k. That is not too bad. I got my BDU's and other misc stuff online for cheap. I got a brand spanking new GG 416 S for 3 bills plus a JG clone Sig 552 for brand new under 200 as well. They both work great

I have been playing for a few years now, and i am up there i know that much, but i remember the first time i went i was hooked and spent the $2600 i had saved up to by a truck. I am a gear and quality whore, its like 4 years now and most of my gear is all original except for the exception of new guns and accessories for them

EDIT: Original gun was an ISC M4, all original gears still, but i want to replace all the internals and move up to an 8mm bearing!
