Default Gorilla Tactics Gamer's Union

Has anyone used them before? If you have used them, do you reccomend them? It seems like a sweet deal, but I am supicious of online sites asking for money. (Their link on TO is http://www.tauonline.org/GorillaTacticsGamersUnion.php)

lol, I actually had the same thoughts. They seem real enough... I recently made a cautionary order a couple days ago. I haven't recieved my items yet, but their communication skills are great; even after paying the invoice. ;D They also have an Ebay profile, and they have a good history there. Hope this helps!

There's a thread floating around here somewhere discussing them. I think I can say that the general consensus is that while they do have sweet deals, they're slow, unprofessional, and very questionable.

I would guess a 6 out of 10.

Pros:
-Great discount

Cons:
-They order from GW so they have to get it then resend
-Very slow (reason stated above)
-Mess up orders (pepsi didn't get something he ordered)
-unprofessional

>.> I know, more cons than pros, but I didn't see too many pros in the discussion. Contact pepsi though, he's had the most dealing with them. Also, search "Gorilla Tactics Gamer's Union" and see what comes up. The thread with 12 odd pages is the one you want to read.

yeah, at this time, I would really consider asking if they have more shipping options.

while it is cheap.

I would love it, if they simply offered a priority mail option. I waited 6 weeks for one book.

and another 6 weeks for a captain (which I still have yet to get)

They are interesting in their response time, but they don't appear to have an efficient method of shipping. Due highly in part on GWs timing.

but seeing as they have other branches, and there odds and ends online with college life, I can understand why, but if I were to run a business (even part time) I would find the most efficient method to ship my product.

if you were to go on the logic

discount=better deal

just input

how bad you want=To the discount

What these kids are doing, is taking a base in Michigan, they invested 1900-2000$ at some point, and now have access to GW whole sale prices (not to be confused with retail prices)

The reason they can do the discount is based off the wholesale price, whatever they mark up from the wholesale price is profit by the difference.

but since it looks like they delved into further product lines to, I would only understand that their shipping is slow to start with, because the product comes to them, then when they get to it they send to you.

these guys are technically legit, its just a matter of how badly you want to wait for your products.

I talked v email with one of the guys there.

They have no physical store. This is a direct violation of GW policy if the have a trade account with them. I can not see how they do not have a trade account with them considering their discounts.

I will say order now, because once GW finds out about them, they will not be around long. GW pursues these matters with a vengence. Since the do not have a store, they out right lied to GW just to get their trade account.

Also the emails I had with them were very unprofessional.

I ordered a Land Raider Crusader and a Razorback... I just placed several more orders as well. I was reading another forum, and I didn't think you HAD to have a physical store... I just thought it was strongly encouraged? Of course, I could be wrong... I really have no clue! ;D

Now I'm a little scared... I just placed a large order with them, and if for some reason they're closed down before my order ships, that's a lot of money gone... :'( Oh well, I'll hope for the best!
