Here's some important advice. Please don't buy all the same color gear. Don't be a grape or a strawberry. Buy black pants and wear a long sleeve tee shirt. If you wear all the same color dye suit you're gonna get made fun of.

This. You have no idea how important the local pro shops are.

It is true that its good to support your local shop. However ANS is not bad. I have made about 4 orders through them, all with good results. They even sent me a gift card once because of delayed shipping. I usually get larger orders off ANS and if I need something quicker or just a smaller purchase I don't mind buying from the local shop.

I do prefer to buy local when I can, but my closest "local shop" is an hour away. I also tend to buy non-standard stuff a lot. I've ordered from ans many times, never a problem. I don't know about their customer service department, because I've never had to contact them. I have, however, had problems with Hustle. Mostly, isolated incidents, I'm sure though.

Long story short, if local isn't practical, don't worry about ANS or Hustle. They're both reputable companies that really do prefer you be happy with them.

Hahahahahahaha! I agree though. First off, try and support your local field. Usually they can order something specific if they don't have it in stock.

If that doesn't work or isn't an option, ANSgear has never done me wrong. They are a great company as far as I'm concerned.

Also, the BST pages on facebook are a good avenue. There are usually some good deals on there.

As many have stated local is always good because you can support them, but like you said ans has some stuff you can't find anywhere else. I have used them many times and never had a problem. I like to order from badlands as well just because they have cheap shipping to Canada.

I did already share this in a different thread - but hopefully the admins/mods won't mind too much:

This is an email I just sent to ANS a few days ago about an order that was placed 18SEP and had not shipped as of 24SEP. They are in the processes of moving warehouses which has caused some delays; HOWEVER, calling in to their customer support was an excellent experience. I really felt like they were bending over backwards to help me out. I am not affiliated with ANSgear in any way --- I just wanted to share this.

P.S. - If you can get it local - get it local!

***
ANS Customer Support Managers:

Recently, I placed an a very large (amount omitted for the forum) order that, for some reason, was significantly delayed. This delay has resulted in the inability to play in a tournament for which we were not able to recoup our entry fees.

The purpose of this email is solely to thank (CSR NAME OMITTED) for his diligence in ensuring that ANS did not lose a customer. (CSR NAME OMITTED) said he would look into the matter - which he did. He said he would follow up by calling me back - which he did several times. Although I will not have the equipment in my hands when I needed it, (CSR NAME OMITTED) was able to ensure expedited (next day air) shipping and $100.00 in-store credit for the inconvenience.

I know that there were certainly managers behind the scenes who deserve praise as well - but I did not get the chance to talk to any of them - so I figured I would take the time to let everyone know how thankful I am - and above all to let ANS know how solid of a CSR (CSR NAME OMITTED) is (although I am sure everyone already knows).

(CSR NAME OMITTED)' efforts have undoubtedly not only saved a customer - but ensured a lifelong one. I will also be making sure that I tell everyone about the fantastic customer service I have received.

Thank you all very much.

I dont know why they say ansgear is bad. I have never had a problem with them. But supporting your local paintball store is always a good thing to do.

I love ANS. I buy from my local shop, ANS and eBay combined. Guns off of eBay/ pbnation as you can find good deals on both if you know what you want. Gear from ANS sometimes guns butbi don't like buying new. And anything else from local shops. But I have done alot of orders through ANS and they've always treated me great. Which is why I still order from them as I'm huge on customer service. I would order from hustle since I live less than an hour from their sop but they never ever have anything in stock. I've asked them about this and they claim its because they move things to fast. (Kind of doubt it). Long story short I'd go local but if they don't have what you want or need go to ANS. Theyre the biggest supplier of paintball gear for a reason.

My 2 cents, I've spent thousands and thousands with ANS (and Action Village prior to them taking over) over the years, don't think I have ever had any problem with them at all. I went down to their store and spent some more money in person some time ago, they hooked me up with some extra stuff then as well. I think most of the hate people have for ANS is simply because they are huge...

ypbf - I think they are great for gear they stock, I would never pre-order anything from them though...

Hustlepaintball seems to have fallen off. I purchased my Geo 3.5 back when they were new from them and had only a couple of week delay. Ive gotten some other smaller items from them as well but that was over a year ago.

I hear all the time that "Ans is bad". This is not true, my team is sponsored by ANS and have ordered several thousands of dollars worth of gear through them with absolutely 0 bad experiences. That being said, ANS is a great place to order gear. Some people say support local and that is true, unless they are low on stock or don't have stock. I personally support local and ANS depending on what my local pro shop has.
