i think the whole barrel length and bore length issue is rather funny. IMO unless you a lot of money to buy expensive equipment and more time to study the whole physics thing, the argument is fairly mute. every system has its strong and weak points. I like my freak and i happened to buy it before i knew about the python and basicaly that and the fact that the freak only needs a new back (given a fair $$) then over 2/3 of the system can swap between guns. this is what sold it for me (less barrels due to gun whore in training status)
boring is an art that many tourney kiddies dont take the time to learn, much like aiming.
Biting, playing dead and sarcasm are a few of the skills that i offer free of charge.
