I have been wondering about this for a while. How much does the lenght and thickness of the barrel on your gun really affect performance? What affects performance more, the thickness or the lenght of the barrel? Or is it the overall skill of the shooter that really matters? Do other people really care about the size of the barrel or are they just happy that it shoots?[;)] Sgtar15 PS I may have too much time on my hands

sgtar15, That is a very good question, me myself I've always had the longer barrels and when I pull them out in front of others I hear them remark and comment, sometimes negatively. They would say "That's too long" and I would reply "Well, do you like my bulbus muzzle brake?" And they would always tell me that they prefer "postban". Gee, what's a guy to do? So I created my own support group, www.largebarrelsupportgroup.com. It's really helped out a lot. I_run_with_scissors

I've never had any complaints. About the length of whatever it is we're talking about. You know. What we're talking about, right? Eric The(OK,MaybeI'veBeenMisled)Hun[>]:)]

No, but it gives me a great idea for a T-Shirt. The Barrel Johnson T-Shirt!!!, This will feature our hero, The Bespectacled Master Gunsmith "Barrel Johnson" with the Logo wording "Hammer her Forge, With a Barrel Johnson Barrel" On the front, and "You'll Shoot a Mile" on the back. You can sell these shirts at the BRC. Heh heh heh...

I let girls try mine out. They take one look and ask "is it going to hurt"?

Many years ago, I asked an expert whom I "knew", and she said that it was more a matter of metallurgy -- as long as everything was properly and thoroughly hardened, and would last a long time, she was happy.

My barrel shoots to quick, and then I have to let it cool off a little while.

I'm just afraid my barrell may be shot out. Hits all over the target sometimes...sigh

My wife finds the big barrel too much, but I had to stop her when she wanted to turn my 20" barrel into a Dissipator.

Unless it is a "mousegun", skill will always prevail. Proper tactics and training, as well as mindset are the key. Eric/Tyler

Sure, a large bore is great for long distance practice shooting, but we all know that when it is time for the real thing, the only thing that matters is shot placement. [:D]

Mine is dark in color but it is puny. However I am happy to say that I tried having phone sex once and found the hole on the recv too small [;D]
