Acquistion of calculator

Dear Group,
I have been away from my HS for the past year. This coming year I will introduce the AP AB to my school.
I assume in the first class you inform students that an approved graphics calculator is required to be successful. After this announcement, from your experience, how long is it before each student has in their grasp said calculator?
Do you encourage the class to obtain the SAME calculator?
How do you navigate lessons requiring the graphics calculator when the class may possess many different approved calculators?
Thanks for your experiences,
Doug Mitchell
