Their customer service was pretty good. Had ordered some stuff and had it sent home, but my parents had happen to go somewhere. The package was eventually sent back, called 'em up, and they immediately reshipped it.

I have never used ANS for anything so I can give no review on them past hearsay but I have used actionvillage many many many times and never had a single problem. plus I love how their website is updated in real time. By "real time" I meaning as soon as you order it automatically adjusts on the site to say, lets say there were 3 left before, now there are 2 left.

I've used both. I still think that ANSgear is the best website to order from.

I have never ordered from ANS, but I been using AV for at least 6-7 years and I have never had a problem with them whatsoever. But from what it sounds like you can really go wrong with either of them. I would base it on where you live, I have no idea where ANS is but AV is in Illinois.

I usually order from AV because I always get my stuff the next day. Or from discount paintball. but then again that is because they are both only a couple hours from my house so I usually get all my stuff the next day.

You gotta love when the community speaks, right?

I bet most of the people who say AV is better are just the ones who have been scared off by all the ANS haters in the news section.

In the New Player section there is a thread called The "is this site legit?" thread. Out of the 51 sites listed, Actionvillage has the greatest number of positive reviews (+132/-6) and ANSGear has the greatest number of negative reviews (+65/-27). I would be wary of them. All the stories I've heard about them is if you go to the brick and mortar store in California they're good, but online their customer service is awful. From what I hear they'll often send people the wrong item, or a broken item, and when you try to get in touch with them about it they'll either ignore you or tell you to make the manufacturer take care of it, regardless of what they manufacturer's policies are on taking returns.

I've never ordered from ANSGear, partly for that reason, but one thing that has always annoyed me on their site is I'll often find a good price or a hard to find item through them on Google Shopping, but 9 times out of 10 their actual site has a disclaimer on that item's page saying not to order it because it is out of stock and will never be restocked, rather than just taking the page down. That's really annoying, and borders on false advertising.
