How much money have you thrown into airsoft?

Breaking down total costs by AEGs/GBBs + addons + accessories excluding airsofting gear.

For myself:

AEGs/GBBs + addons & accessories:
$300 - TM M4 AEG + cheapo red dot (pre-college, now gone)
$150 - TM Glock 26 GBB (pre-college, now gone)
$150 - Miscellaneous spring type airsoft (pre-college, now gone)
$400 - M4 CQB AEG
$550 - Addon & Accessories for CQB M4
$250 - M&P Compact GBB
$200 - Batteries, Charger, BBs and GG for GBB

Total ~$2,000

Never mind the stupid guns, I've probably spend more than $5000 on gear.

The reason why: most of it was far too niche dependent or terrible (buy nice things, you fools).

Pretty sure I dumped more than that in the first few months after I liked airsoft and got tired of borrowing. Don't ask what it's been since then.

5+ grand easy and I'm still searching or that perfect loadout. I'm close now but will only accept perfection. I'm not limiting myself by doing a true impression so it's a totally personal loadout.

2 1/2 years in, way too frigging much.

Nice little diverse selection of reasonable quality weapons with no duplicates, suitable for pretty much any occasion/scenario/role. In reality, i use 2 on a routine basis. The others are pretty much wall-hangers or Redneck living room decoration. In the neighborhood of $4k right there. Cost inflated by the fact that most were bought just before Canadian prices started coming down, and aggravated further by large aesthetic parts and accessories add-ons and change-outs to make them "mine".

Clothing, webbing and support gear - likely about $2k - enough to do a few weapons specific load-outs and roles. All of it generic, non-specific to nationality/theater/milsim depth of play. Personal preference is to not represent what i am not, and never could be. That cuts costs down significantly, considering what i do have.

"Toys" .. another $2.5k at least. Includes a $1300.00 used beater ATV setup, specific for airsoft use.

I am an older player, with more disposable income than most airsoft players would have, and likely much less fiscal common sense than most, also. I could never go half-arsed into pursuit of hobbies and interests .. I shudder to think what i spent on my currently inactive motorcycle hobby the previous 20 years, before airsoft became an interest for the sake of "redneck physio". No wife/SHMBO, no larvae, and a good steady job helps aggravate the spending, also.

The bulk of the spending is now, thankfully, done. I've pretty much got what i want, or could ever need. No plans to do WW2, or go GBBR, or go hardcore impression milsim. Additional costs should be maintenance, or event specific only.

You can certainly buy into airsoft for much, much less...

How do you guys spend so much on gear? AEGs I understand because there are infinite internal and external upgrades. Fancy scopes. Maybe even real steel scopes/accessories. Nice gearbox components etc.

But as for gear, you get a helmet, a vest, a change of clothing, goggles, and maybe rinse and repeat for different camo, I am thinking maybe $1G should be more than enough?
