MAG p90 mags. Only one fed properly on my P90. I've spent enough money on airsoft to raise and equip a child army in Africa.

I have a bunch of regrets but none for buying something, all are for not buying something right away when I say it do up for sale.

money comes and goes....some guns don't

No regrets, I think Airsoft keeps me sane in this crazy and oppressive society. If I did'nt spend it on Airsoft I would probably have spent the money either on therapy for repressing my emotions or a lawyer for venting them

WA 5" infinity that i bought when i first started. Thought it was a cool pistol. Bought it for cheap, ended up not working for the while that i had it. Sold it off to someone who knows WA's in and out.

Trading my P90 for an M249. M249 worked great, but nowhere near as fun as the P90. Just my luck that 2 months down the line, all sorts of different midcaps start being released for the P90.

Expense wise? meh. All of Men's hobbies are expensive, we need something to spend our money on. I'm sure everyone here has a secondary or tertiary hobby which they also spend exuberant amounts on. Be it cars, star gazing, cigar smoking, drinking (finer drinks), cards, models, etc.

Very true statement, I have quite a few on my part. I have airsoft, warhammer, my art supplies (When markers start costing 6 bucks a peice, and a case costs up to 300 bucks... yeah), real steel, my love for accordions... It really adds up, haha.

My regret is trading off a classic army m24. My baby. Ughhhh

I regret nothing! But I also make enough money to support all my money pit hobbies.

Why work all the time if your not going to spend a little? Besides airsoft is relitivly cheap compared to my other hobby, Volkswagens.

Which reminds me of Golf.

Any idea how much an iron set costs nowadays?

If I'm gonna be carrying around ridiculous amounts of gear for hours at a time in summer heat, I might as well get the satisfaction of getting to shoot at somebody every once in a while.

1. Sold my FA-MAS years ago. STILL kicking myself in the ass over that one. That gun was excellent.. probably the best backup AEG I've ever had... and the gun I bought with the proceeds was by far the WORST AEG I've ever owned.

2. Buying non-BNIB gun off the ASC classifieds. I have over $1,000 worth in guns I can't use because I've been fucked over in some way or another, and that doesn't count the gun Karma and I had to completely rebuild (read: with a machine shop) to make it functional.
