    Good question but no one's mentioned that specifically.

    Not enough if you ask me, too much if you ask my wife
    Why?? Because at the last second, the Police are minutes away.

    Unfortunately I've somehow managed to pick the most expensive hobbies known to man: shooting, boating, golf, hockey, and women.

    I think it goes without saying that shooting is not my most expensive hobby, that would be my girlfriend.

    Just with ammo alone I blow past 1K annually, does not make much sense to have the tool and not exercise with it weekly.

    shoot straight and shoot often

    As someone who is a marriage counselor, I see a lot of job security in this thread. That said, fortunately I teach CCW classes and some others that pay for my hobby independent of my "real" money. Mine is a little north of $3,00 but that is teacning ammo, USPSA ammo and range ammo, plus 2-3 new a year. Finally, guns, not so bad. What would a survey of golfers or gearheads show?

    I voted for $1,000 or less but it may have been a bit more. The ammo was probably somewhere between $70-$100.

    My birthday gift of a Mosin-Nagant 91/30 for about $120 and the Ruger LCR for the wife's birthday at $585 were the major additions to the total.

    I don't have to worry though. My wife loves to shoot, even more than I do so it's cool when I purchase stuff.

    From op

    So, at this point (123 responses), 2/3 rds of responders are within the first two categories: somewhere between $0 and $2000 - and 1/3rd are above $2000.

    No one category of the four is a runaway.

    The great majority of those over $3000 are only over by a small amount.

    Doesn't sound like lavish spending to me all in all. I'd say quite reasonable.
