The length of the barrel does not matter. The bore size and quality of the barrel are what matter.

I'd suggest a lapco bigshot if your looking for something cheap but accurate. Its medium bore to shoot a wide variety of paint, costs about $50, and comes in 8, 10, 12, and 14". Longer barrels do not add accuracy or distance.

In addition to the Bigshot, check out the J&J Ceramic for an entry level barrel. It's self cleaning.

and if you want to spend bookoo bucks. A good barrel kit is a must. Lapco has the Snapshot, Smart Parts has the Freak.
