How many guns do you own and how much do you make a year?

Just interested in knowing how everyone's airsoft armory corresponds to their personal wealth.

I only own 1 gun and I'm a student, so my income is negative.

I am a student but I work, so I'm neutral. I currently own 3 AEG builds, a PTW, 3 pistol builds, a gen 3 NOD...

Freaking pesto...

Also a student, also working. 1 stock AEG (my starter/beginner gun), 1 heavily upgraded AEG, 1 heavily upgraded GBBR, and 2 stock pistols (1 is waiting for a full build)

Planning on investing in a ton of gear when I graduate though...

Student graduating tomorrow. Just started working pt last week (but the hours are more like full time >_>). Did a bunch of odd jobs throughout my previous 4 years but nothing outside of contracts. Last time I checked I have a net worth of about $200 if i pay off my tuition in full this month.

1 g36c, 3 px4's (supposed to be 4 but it's in repair), 1 shotgun and a little dinky clear-soft springer that you get from those walmart bb buckets.

I have no gear and I use a multi-purpose sports helmet for airsoft

Full time (moderate pay)

1x PTW 3x AEG 2x GBBP

Gear is all top end real steel (major $$$)

I've been cultivating my loadout for years though, so it's not bought all at once, plus lots of selling and trading online. My Systema kit is worth nearly everything else added together. I have one kid, a medium/big dog, wife, child on the way and lots of bills.

I distract my wife with jewelry, plus I cook a lot. lol

A few....
Graduated student, I work for a security company. Barely above min wage.

Got guns like my inokatsu 1911 at 1300+
and my tippmann around there or more too, and stuff down to like..$100?
But it adds up. To a lot. More than I realistically should have.

I'm a graduate student, and historically been really good at saving my money, but bad at picking hobbies because it's always the expensive ones.

I make enough in the summer to pay for school, and I make enough as a TA to pay for Airsoft.

1 x GBB Pistol
1 x Pretty much stock AEG
1 x Moderately upgraded AEG
1 x Heavily upgraded AEG
aaaand Pouches everywhere...

Will probably sell one of the AEGs to finance a GBB rifle; but first I need to build up my mil-sim kit since I'm pretty much just a skirmish guy at the moment.

edit: I'm a believer in fewer, better guns; and don't ever see myself owning more than 3 rifles at a time. 1 for indoor, 1 for outdoor, 1 GBB...?
I've easily spent 2-3x more on non-gun equipment than I have on actual guns.

Student, so income negative as well. Made a mistake of getting another AEG last semester, then realizing that I'm 300$ short for my tuition (no regrets)

2 x AEG's (AKS-74U and AKS-74)
1 x GBBP (Glock 17)
Milsim kit - collected over last several years (when tuition was not yet a problem)


EDIT:

It is an M16 with an AK mag, yes. That mag has been modded to now fit my tippmann M4. So I modded ANOTHER mag for the M16. Because reasons.

not a student. I work. I make a reasonable middle class wage.
I have 5 aegs at the moment? maybe 6. Parts to build probably 2 more.

I have 2 pistols and a shotgun.

I really only use 1 of my AEGs cause it's built and ran without issues for years.
I keep fucking around with some of the others but never actually use them.

p90 used to be my primary field gun, it's semi retired now
g36k for field
mp5 cqb
g36c for a loaner bitch gun and spring testing since it has a quick change spring gearbox
mc50 probably going to set it up as a cqb loaner bitch gun
g3sg1 probably going to set it up as a wall hanger with unfieldable fps or if I can find a quick change spring gearbox for it, an occasional noob terrorizing gun.

I work on guns so money I make on that is going towards paying for airsoft stuff. Not sure how much money I'm in, but stuff I do for people is starting to pay for the hobby.
