    One other point you said to meet other pinball people. You might try to PM some asking if you can meet or just talk about pinball related stuff. Not everyone will want to respond but you never know. Some of my best friends were met that way.

    My first 6-8 pins I bought were from a local shop but I never interacted with other pinball people. The hobby is more fun when you have a bunch of guys and gals who you can hang with.

    One thing (imo) would not narrow the pins down to just The shadow and 3 other pins (etc) and just $3500.

    With that you are limited to maybe a few possible games locally. I would more look for anything mildly popular in good shape good price local.

    I’m established with a decent collection so I can pick only one specific pin if I want. But if I was starting out it doesn’t matter if it’s The Shadow or T2 is something else. If it’s decently popular you can sell it or trade later.
