PostSubject: Is www.ShortyUSA.com a good website??   Tue Jul 15, 2008 9:31 pm

Hello, I was just wondering if www.ShortyUSA.com is a good website. I have bought one gun from there, the UTG M3 triple barrel shotgun, and it works fine. I would never shop at a place such as Airsplat, because I've heard and can just tell it has horrible customer service. Shotys looks like it would have fine customer service, but I am not sure as I had no problems with the UTG M3. If anybody has anything to say on it, (I.E. price, customer service, selection, etc.) Please let me know. thanks. Oh, btw- I am 4-Star General CAR-15 on that site if you want to check out my reviews.....look at the M1A1 Thompson on that site, my review is the first one on there. Well, thanks everyone.

Yes and no. Yes for reasons that can start a whole debate lasting 8-9 pages. no because they are somewhat overprice and innacurate in their information. Their "customer" reveiws are also editted.

i would say no, they have very inflated prices(they sold E1's for 170-180 when they first got them, and they still haven't reduced their CA or TM prices which were reduced back when i got my TM which was 4 years ago).

they usually have incorrect info about their products(est effective range, FPS etc etc), and their staff is not the most knowledgeable at all...

personally i would stick with the recommended retailers rather than paying an inflated price for a mediocre product sold by a shifty site.

personal recommendations (in order): Airsoftsmith.com, airsoftgi.com, and based on what people are saying about them precisionairsoft.com.

good luck

Yes I've actually been to shortys. All of my freinds get our guns from there except the one cheap over protective parents kids. Yes I do agree there prices are a little high but their data is right on. I was there when they chronoed the Triple Barrel Shot gun and it was shooting around 270-275 which is what they listed it. I also saw the range and accuracy. The reviews are not edited. I write reviews and there word for word on which I say. Not all there guns are good but they know what they are talking about. One reason they're more exspensive because they are in delaware with no sales tax. Plus they are not shifty. I've been their and got great advice. I haven't ordered online because I get wha to indepth Smile . Their shipping is amazing from all the reviews and all the warranty problems have been taken care of.

I think no. Ive heard a lot of horror storys about this website but also some really good reviews about it. If you looking for a good trust worthy airsoft website just go with the most popular one on this site www.airsoftgi.com

Also check out this video it may help you.

I would have to say "yes". It's one of the first online stores I started shopping from. They always had great service, and their information was always helpful, along with customer reviews.

About a year ago, I realized that they were stationed about 30 minutes away. I've been there multiple times since. Their customer service was fantastic, always letting me hold the products, comparing products, and just making a great impression. I have noticed they're a little pricey, but I just rely on them for so many things. (Including no sales tax.)

ShortyUsa like most site's, has its ups and downs. In my opinion, I think that definitly are some better sites out there than shorty. If I were you, I would keep looking for better websites like airsoftmegastore, or airsoftgi. Shorty is an ok website, but they are definity not the greatest.
