You get $2,000 just for paintball gear/guns. What do you do?

You get $2000 to spend exclusively to spend on paintball gear/guns (not on paint, events, or non-pb related stuff. Hypothetical situation). Would you spend it all (or most of it) on one high-end gun? Would you split it up and buy a few mid-range markers? Or a ton of lower end guns?

I would split it up.
$500 for a Dragon 2.5 Intimidator, a new anno, and some parts
$200 for a new HPA tank
$50 for a used Halo B w/ speedfeed
$300 for a Black Magic Autococker and parts
$200 for a Crosman 3357
$200 for a used TiPX and extra mags
$300 for an FXR kit
$100 for an air tank in stock
$150 for Zetamags, molle vest, and other accessories.

Depends on what I already had. My main setup is good to go so I'd probably get a Box Rotor for the DAM and then try and find an old Brass Eagle Nightmare Long pump. Maybe some night vision...don't know after that.

Definitely split it up.
Likely pick up a real nice cocker or pump for personal use
Pick up some extra masks and markers for friends to use (3 or 4)
Vest or holster for pistol play
2nd pistol
Mags
Would be all I need.

I would use the money to have the scratch build parts I need produced for my custom electro-cocker.

I would buy a one high end and a rotor just so I can finally be on a tournament team. I get asked nearly every day to be on one, but the stipulation is that I get a new marker. Yeah, I can easily take down anyone with my autococker, it's just that it would be nice if I could get a locking feed so my hopper doesn't fly off every other superman dive. I feel that it would be easier to chrono exactly the field limits with a new marker with newer regulators.

If i already have everything i have now, I'd buy a cone GTi, Virtue VIO, and spend the rest on paint. Or finish building my shocker.

I'd travel to...
- Invasion of Normandy
- Living Legends
- Decay of Nations

Wait, I did that already.

I'd go to the Citadel game over in France next year. The pictures are awesome from that in the Scenario section. I think 2K would cover the cost to go to an epic game.

This is a hypothetical situation, not financial advice.
