I use mostly 10" barrels.




A gun is not a weapon... It's a tool. Like a butcher knife, or a harpoon, or...uh, a...an alligator.

I like really anyting up to a 14". My favorite would have to be either a 10 or 12" though. But I absolutely hate 16" barrels and up. I just think they're stupid. I actually think my 14" is a tad long.

I love my 14". What do you not like about it?? Yeah, whenever I see 22" barrels and whatnot I just roll my eyes.

I like my 14" barrel. Sometimes I wonder if I would like a 12" better though.

NASA and the Americans spent millions of dollars and hundreds of hours to develop a pen that would write in space.....The Russians used a pencil.

Don't get me wrong, I love my 14" AA. But sometimes when I'm sliding and stuff, it gets in the way a little.

Gotcha. I tend to swing wide and take them out from an unexpected angle, so I need the accuracy.

Barrel length does not affect accuracy or distance.How many times do I have to say that today.

A ball needs about 6-7 inches before reaching its desired speed and stabalizes and anyhting after that is pretty much wasted air.

I think a 14" inch is the best size for the position that I play. I play mid and it works great.

I like the 12". not to long not to short. for woods it just long enough to stick through some brush. for speedball its just short enough not to be in the way. i am thinking of going down to a 10" if i start to play more often.
