Shtgun?

So I have some cash and gift certificates from christmas. I have lav mics for events, but I also enjoy doing shorts on the side as a hobby. I'm looking into getting a shotgun mic setup, and wondering if it would be feasible for business, or if I should just plan on using it for my shorts. Any thoughts?

Honestly from what I've read here and heard from other videographers, wireless lavs can be finnicky- especially if you're buying on a budget. I recommend a couple of decent lavs (look around this and the audio board above for brand recommendations) and a couple recorders you can stick in the groom's/officiant's pockets so you don't have to worry about signal strength, distance, etc. I use minidisc recorders I got for 25 bucks a pop off ebay and they've worked fantastically well for me thus far. Good *temporary* solution for a non-existent budget.
