I have no regrets in regards to airsoft spending as I understand that any hobby you wish to delve deeply into will eventually require a small to significant monetary investment. So what if I have 3 MBSS platforms in different colors with identical pouch set ups. I like to fashionable.

The only true regrets that I hold in life pertain to sometimes not using enough lube...

...but that is a topic for an entirely different discussion.

6. give ring to GF
7.Start saving for wedding And the potential divorce
8.stop being a chump and buying shit you can't afford
9.have lot's of friends with lot's of storage space and similar hobbies at times you can always say the guns are his
10.If she is the one she would be just as happy if you gave her a grenade pin instead of a traditional ring

AS Spending Regrets--- none yet... and I'm easily $25000 in
corrected and added some advice........I don't even want to know what I stand in airsoft spending now, the last time I did it it was 1997 and it was depressing as the amount equals to a brand new fully loaded M Tuned BMW 3 series and i was driving around in a riced up Toyota Supra Twin Turbo and the only thing I ever regret buying is those TOP M60 when they first came out

I guess all that time in the shop does that to you. . I don't know how much I spent so far, and I am very afraid to add it up right now.

Biggest regret, half my gear and my WE 1911. About 1/3 of my gear didn't work the way I thought they would and about 1/5 of my gear was crap. I've gone through 5 holsters for 2 of my pistols before finding 1 that works good. Went through 3 goggles (1 the strap broke, the other fogged up like a mofo). Got 2 chest rigs that just didn't work right for me, I'm now a molle convert. Busted 2 sets of knee and elbow pads. My WE1911, all pot metal and busted easily.
All this probably makes up for 1/4 of my whole airsoft budget, approximately $6k.
