big companies make mistakes like that because they get hundreds if not thousands of orders a day. id like to see you try to keep track of all those orders and merchandise without making any mistakes...

actionvillage will probably send you free stuff since they made a mistake too, thats what they usually do.

Mention that you spend a lot of time on online forums and free stuff may multiply - ;)

Actionvillage jacks orders up a lot. Its a shame. They have such a good stock, but they can't seem to get it into boxes correctly.

exactly....everyone human. I wouldnt get mad, because when you think of it, they are running one of the biggest PB companies in the world (in online stores). Alot of people order from them for paintball, as well as they have like Snowboarding and other action sports products they sell.

If you think about it, say if your there 10000 customer and you were the one person they messed up on, that means that they still got 99.99% on there orders right....everyones human.

I woulda just gotten a halo or reloder off of the BST section tho...cheaper

.....and then you can share with your moderator friends! ;)

I've struck actionvillage off my list of venders because I've had bad luck with them for almost a year now. Started with them switching shipping companies and now it takes almost two weeks to ship to Oklahoma (something wrong there!) and moved through bad products to incorrect products.

Yes, it's true they get a lot of orders - they're one of the biggest, if not THE biggest online seller of paintball stuff I would think. Been around quite awhile now, so they're pretty good at taking care of stuff. It's just a bit of a hassle is all!

The other day I ordered a Redz Flex Tex 6+1 pack and they sent me the wrong one and I got the right one today it was supposed to come with 4 free pods and it didn't. But that is not really a big deal.

Today I was wandering around AV and decide that, if I had it, I would have dropped roughly 1500 on them. Now I wonder, how many things would they get wrong in an order of that size?

I wonder how much you could save if you could have bought it from me. :)

Just kidding guys, but seriously..I can normally save people money if they talk to me first but it seems a lot of people are too lazy to PM me before they spend the extra cash at Action Village or other people that are required to advertise and sell at certain prices. Oh well.

Well, I probably would have come to you. I know the deals you can make for people. But you would have to be very hush-hush, so the final result could impress people who wouldn't see it coming from me, the guys always whining about not having money.

I've ordered from action village like 10 times and they have never messed up my orders. the only problem is I picked free shipping, it takes like 3 weeks.
