    Mountain home is beautiful, if you're not into hunting that would be a great place to start. As for the airsofting it's probably even worse over there than in NWA:/

    I've seen them in old loadout pics, I don't know if they make them anymore.

    Let's see. $80 AK, $1 AK, $100 Type 89, $140 for the UAR.

    $60 in magazines, some $200 or so in accessories for my good AK, $50 in BBs for home. $18 or so in painting supplies. $40 in batteries and charger, another $60 or so in internal parts at a guess. 2 sets of goggles and a set of thermal lenses, another $80 or so. $10 bump helmet, $15 mesh mask, $80 plate carrier, $20 chest rig, $3 speed loader.

    Money spent at the field... I dunno. Rented for 3 or 4 games, so that's an extra $50 over just using my own gun, and I think I've probably played 15 at $25 a piece, plus $3 per bag of BBs, which I've bought 2 of a time or two, and we come to another $420.

    So, at a rough guess, $1500? Roughly one month's pay over the course of 4 years isn't bad.

    Jeranhound you sound like a man after my own heart, I prefer to spend less and to improve what I have before I spend in something new. My load out is going to end up pretty similiar to yours.

    I'm going to disappoint, really. I need to have a tech go over my Type 89. Turns out rewiring is a massive annoyance, and the first thing that happened when I got the gun apart was I snapped a motor connector, so I had to figure that out. Cue nightmare. Cut my wire a little too short, but don't have any more bullet connectors. Wiring is a tad too thick to fit through the pre-cut brackets in the barrel assembly, I can't get any current through when I pull the trigger. All kinds of nightmares.

    On the bright side, I did manage not to lose any screws, springs, or random bits and bobs, so the mechanical burst is still fully functional. I just wish I had got to put more than a dozen BBs through my new purchase before managing to screw it up.

    Hahaha nope that sounds pretty close to my own experiences. But you've gotta screw up a few times to be good at anything.

    Wow, that is a lot of money spent in a relatively short period of time. That's true devotion to the sport.

    Nobody that has voted has spent under 250. That shocking. No extreme budget airsofters yet to vote.

    Patagonia, Arcteryx and Crye are to blame.
