How much you make shouldn't be a question, I have seen players that make 6 figure salaries use ics and sub 400$ guns, I have also seen people living on government checks run ptw's with many upgrades and Milspec load outs with gen 3 nods.

The question is what is Airsoft to you and how much of you're life are you willing to dedicate to it.

Government job 8 months of the year 35-45 an hour, EI for 4 months, since city workers hate being cold or wet.

I have owned many guns, most I have purchased, customized and flipped to trade to something better or purchase something better.

Currently own

Heavily Modified WE SCAR L GBBR
#Mostrealistic2016 TM Glock 17
Customized Roni Kit with led lighting
CA Pro line P90 with tracer unit when I'm to lazy to aim. (red and green pews for days)
KWA MK23, with a customized working LAM unit (high intensity light and eye safe laser)
Mags as far as they eye can see

And I just picked up a CA M249, that I am turning into a daytona gun with a 90/4500 tank. Short barrel, collapsible stock and R-hoping. Using 1200 box mags to avoid tactical maracas. Maximum troll at maximum engagement distances ahoy!

I have a decent job, middle class salary but I also still have crippling student debt.

I have 2 bolt guns (1 HEAVILY upgraded, 1 not), a standard M4 AEG I'm working on upgrading to HPA, and 2 gas pistols.

It's like Quattro said, it's really how much are you willing to dedicate, some people airsoft is they life, others it's just one of many hobbies and a lot of people in the middle.

I currently own two AEG rifles, LCT AS VAL that is moderately upgraded and a Real Sword that is currently being upgraded as well. This is down from the two AR's and two AK's I use to own.... realized that I don't need more than two rifles.

Currently work as an eLearning developer/videographer/graphic designer with a moderate income. I don't buy new stuff normally unless I actually NEED it.

I've got;

3x TM Recoil Shock AEGs (1 fully upgraded, 2 semi upgraded)
1x TM 870 Shotgun
1x VFC MP5k GBB
3x TM GBB pistols

While the guns are pricey, a good chunk of my money spent on airsoft is mags, gear, optics, upgrade parts, tech work (since I'm a useless tech myself), and so on.

I'm a senior manager at a 200 person company, income is pretty good. Girlfriend and I just bought a house, no kids yet.
