This kind of sounds requires a lot of time investments (right place at the right moment), a lot of tricks (wind traps), and a lot of hardware (windshields etc.), so IMHO the BT serie is quite cheap in this regard.
Making a wind recording has nothing to do with making a door recording or the such, it's way more complicated.
How do you guys usually do it? Buy in bulk? or search for specific sounds you need for projects?
It depends on the budget for the project. As a sound editor you should aks for a budget to buy additional sounds. Unfortunately, in France for example, it's shrinking every year (thanks to those sound editors using "cracked" sound libraries and giving them for free).
As a soon to be graduated college student I don't exactly have a ton of money to spend, haha.
In this case, just use Creative Commons licensed sounds (freesound.org), or do your own recordings, but please respect the work of sound engineers that spent a lot of time doing these sounds, and therefore the price they are asking for them.
