Lives for gear

Hate to be Debbie Downer, but coming here to ask how to spend money is like going to a highway overpass and asking the group assembled what drugs you should buy.

How old are you? What are your life goals? Do you understand the miracle of compound interest (i.e., the ability to get even more amazing gear a few years down the road, after what you're about to splash out on is long obsolete)? How likely is it that you'll ever turn a profit in this horrible industry? Do you have a support system if **** goes pear-shaped?

I'd advise that you spend several hours reading the reddit personal finance board. Then evaluate whether you have a better understanding between "want" and "need".

And this is advice from a hypocrite, which is the best advice of all.

Also, buy used!
