Used to be actionvillage, but I don't like them anymore. Punisher's, Wevo's, eBay and off of forums are the places I've been visiting lately....

Forums and Carolina PBS (www.carolinapbs.com). It's owned by a guy named Durrell on these boards, and if you PM or email him he usually gets you the best prices around on new stuff.

post count doesnt matter, but

go to druids link/feedback on the internet sites, it really helps and its good for comparing prices sometimes too

BUT Durrell will give u the best prices around. PM him

Funny you say this Vike... I know you hate USPS and all, But I like it no more than you.. I still find that it is a great store.. It may not have some things in stock all the time, but at least they tell you if it is in stock or not.. I know Punisher's is a great store, but they lack a stock status.. It never tells you if the item is in stock or not, until you have already ordered it.. Which does not do much good..

I recommend Actionvillage all the way.. And just don't pick the Economy shipping option.. I order things from that site almost weekly and I have always found that the UPS ground method is only 3-5 dollars more than the economy method.. I think it is worth the 3-5 bucks..

actionvillage has so many wierd polocies they dotn tell you about, like where important stuff is out of stock so they just dont send it AT ALL... seriously thats a polocy, just worded differently. they have all sorts of stuff though, which i love. ebay sucks

Splatter Paintball in Moore, OK. you gotta give the local store some love, not to mention most of their prices are around internet pricing.

Pretty much why I stopped using them. I really don't like USPS because seriously I've never had a single order come in on time or in good condition to date....but the AV of today, IMHO, is nothing like the AV of a couple years ago. They do have A TON of stuff (if it's in stock, of course) which is cool, but if others are having good luck with them, then that's who I'd go with.

I'd support local stores, IF we had any around here. If you have any in your area, that's what I'd do.
