Paintballgear.com/Actionvillage.com Did it again!

I ordered my a Proteus mask from actionvillage.com, or as some of you know it as paintballgear.com, for $39.99. Well here it is the day after I ordered it, and it's here! Awsome mask too, shipping was a bit steap at $8.20, but for second day arrival, good price. Not to mention most other pbstores charge roughly the same for shipping. If you guys want a Proteus, order fast, they are going quick! I tried to order from 3 other pbstores befor paintballgear, and they all got backordered, and eventually the order was completely canceled! I heard from each one, word is JT stopped making the Proteus to possibly work on a new mask that will beat out the Dye Invison. We can only hope! Heh, what started as a topic about how good pbgear did, turned into one about the JT.....

PAINTBALLGEAR = ULTIMATE PBSTORE

I've never had a bad experience with them... After a few years of buying from there the first thing they didn't have in stock were my volumizers. Always had the stuff within 3 days and they're cheap ++++

Yeah, I order from Action Village/Paintball Gear all the time. They usually have what I want in stock and I receive the order within a week just via ground shipments. They are quick to answering questions via email whether it's for tech support or just questions.

i've had nothing but problems with pballgear. com but i've learned and don't order from them anymore. also they didn't can the proteus, it's just that they now make them out of a more flexible material.

i always used to order from pbgear. until now...they sold me one of the flex masks that were on sale for 30 bucks even though they knew they were not going to have any more shipped to them. we ordered over the phone and the dude assured us that it would be here by christmas. after the 28 we called and they said that they sold out a LONG time ago and wouldn't be getting any more in....
that's why i don't shop there any more.

yeah when you order stuff that is out of stock, it usually takes a long time. i ordered some stuff on Dec 12, and they still aint here, but i got an e-mail saying the company has shipped the stuff to the store, so it shouldnt be too much longer... but from now on, i make sure everything is in stock.

and about first call, yes, i too have ordered stuff from them, a week goes by and i call to check on the order. they said it was out of stock and didnt know when or if they we getting anymore in. well a couple days past i got an e-mail saying that they canceled the order... lol not to mention they really need to update their site, supposedly i can call to see if i can still get stuff shipped befor x-mas...

with any mask the can hit you in the mouth. ive been hit in the mouth piece of my spectras and have gotten paint in my mouth. true with the flex 7 you have the chance of having the paintball bounce but its not gonna happen everytime. and the proteus is a very good mask. i love mine.

yeah the proteus is incredible, cause when the opposing team sees you they cant help but vomit cause its so ****ing ugly.

its a great mask but the looks just absolutely kill it (i know thats kind of shallow to take appearance over function, but theres plenty of other great masks out there)

they didnt can the proteus but they are recalling it, because some material around the ear can crack and can make the ears vulnerable to a ball hit

check out the news for urself
http://www.jtusa.com

btw, pbgear.com owns j00 they are a very good site who sells things cheap, and if they dont and u find a site that has they're stuff cheaper, u just tell them about it and they will change the price to match the competition!

I've tried ordering from pballgear.com twice, and I've gotten screwed twice. No apologies, no explanation, no one cares. Anyone who gets good service from them must have gotten thru to the new kid who hasn't been corrupted yet.
