I used to love ordering crap from AV. Since they decided to switch their shipping policies, I've hated ordering from them. It took over two weeks to get a freak back I ordered from them once....when it used to take 4 days.
I refuse to order from them anymore....

Yeah, they switched to only 79 bucks to get free shipping, but if you choose the free shipping it is USPS.. Which is why it takes so long... But, they do offer, for an extra 5 bucks, UPS ground... Which, IMO, is fast and VERY reliable.. I ordered paint monday night, it came wednesday afternoon, and I am in GA.. They are in Illinos.. I say thats pretty good for 5 bucks..

Shipping delays can happen because of the shipper and AV cannot control those. Also, if you get economy shipping(their free shipping) you deserve to wait to get your stuff. The name just screams slow. I've had to wait 2 weeks before to get stuff from them using UPS Ground. I wish everyone used USPS Priority. I've never had trouble with it.

I've never had trouble with Av. In fact I love ordering from them. Like shadow said, if you just pay the xtra 5 bucks for shipping you get it in like 2-3 days. But I do live in KY. Meh, I like em

They took 16 days to ship me a new JAVA 9.6v battery once.....
The next thing I bought was a closeout and it got here in 3 days! (I live in KY too)....
I think it depends on there inventory and its location......
Now I get everything I need from durrel at CPBS!

USPS sucks soo bad. Now im going to stick with UPS or fedex. USPS never leaves packages and one time they told me I could pick up my package, I drive 20min there then they say I had to pick it up on tuesday and it was saturday.

Did you miss the post about bringing up old threads? These guys lose either way if they bring up an old thread. Would you rather them post a whole new thread? When they "don't search" you guys flame them for posting a new thread. But if they bring up an old one, they get flamed. What are they supposed to do? That was a useless post. :down:

I ordered a $40 paintball gun (Icon Z) from actionvillage.com and it came the day BEFORE it was supposed to be delivered so I haven't had a bad experience so far.

I have never had any issues with Action Village. Always a great experience!
I was reading through this thread and read some stuff, that is not true. My mom works for USPS so this might sound byist but it really is true.
The economy shipping for Action Village is slow, not due to USPS though. Fed Ex has to ship there packages out to your local post office. When they are running late they take it to the USPS bulk mail center, from there it takes up to 3 days because of all the mail that is there. Fed Ex occasionally will leave stuff at local post offices because they do not want to have to deliver the package all the way to the other city.
In conclusion, when you order USPS it is not always their fault for having your package arrive late.
