If she knew what they cost she definitely wouldn't let you play with them, it can be an expensive hobby. I had close to 50 pellet guns and over around $30,000 invested at one time. I have close to $3,000 invested in one gun.

remote controlled with a turret on it that fires pellets

good stuff. I played hockey from when i was 6 up until 20. Played junior 1 level and could have gotten a scholarship had I not ****ed my back up and had to stop playing full contact ice hockey. I still play roller hockey though.

That and I mountain bike as well.

i built up my BMX, which is a pretty damn nice ride, for under 900 bucks.
i cant find a single decent mountain bike for under 1500. and thats used.
i just dont have that kind of cash to play with.
but i have been seeing alot of videos of mountain biking and it just looks so f'ing fun.

Around $800 is a great starting price of a mountain bike. ( depending on the style of riding)

I've still got my Trek mountain bike and try to ride it whenever I can. Also, I have my trains.

style of riding is the killer.
with bmx, i can have one bike built for street, dirt, park, and vert. all in one.

with mountain bikes...id only want to do some urban stuff, like i do on my bmx. jumping stairs and off walls and such.
or downhill.

both are very expensive. and no other style interests me.

Check Craigslist. You should be able to get either one of those for under 1000. Won't be super awesome top spec but there's deals out there for sure. I've been scoping out some trail bikes that are 2-3k new a few years ago and are down to 1k.

checked there too. havent checked recently but when i did the prices were just insane.
but even if i do decide to buy one, id have to justify the price by selling my bmx, which is such a strong part of my childhood, i dont think i could do it.
PLUS, id get MAYBE 400 bucks for it.
depreciation suuuuccks.
half my parts are over 2-3 years old. and BMX parts evolve SO ****ing fast

Still break out the slot car sets pretty often. I was really into it in high school and dropped almost all of my paychecks on it, it was a serious obsession. But then i got the jeep and you all know how that story goes.
