In regard to Eskimo's post, I think it's great that you didn't use a shorter barrel and kept to your native play style. It's good to learn to adapt your style to fit a foreign environment rather than adjust your style.
On a side note, what barrel do you use and how do you like? I'm considering getting a J&J 20" and would like to know what people think about it.
Well, for the past 3 years I've been using a Smartparts 20" Tactical. It's a black one piece with porting all down the sides. The last 2" of the barrel is a mock muzzle break so in reality it shoots like an 18". The first time I had this barrel was on my old 98c. It was amazing how much it quieted my shots. In fact, it was so quiet that at scenario games people couldn't believe I was shooting a tippmann. It's accurate. For a while I went back to using my stock barrel and a few others but got annoyed at how wide my shot pattern was. So I switched back to the Tactical and was amazed at how small my spread got. The true test of it's accuracy came one day when I was at a scenario game in Austin, TX. It was the first time I had used my ghillie effectively and I managed to get through the line of scrimmage and belly crawled my way to the enemy's CP. The OpForces' "general" was standing outside his tent surveying the battle down below. Confident no one had gotten that close he had his arms crossed and his gun wasn't anywhere to be seen. Took my time, lined up my sight, and I managed to get a headshot at about 40-50 yards(some of that credit has to go to marbilzers lol). It was an amazing event and sealed the deal on whether or not I was going to stick with this barrel. For as light as it is, the thing is pretty tough too. As much as I've banged it on rocks while crawling through the weeds, it doesn't have so much as a scratch on it. When I finally got my A5-A2 I didn't hesitate going out and buying another one of these barrels. And I've never regretted it. On a final note, when I originally saw the price tag on the tactical I was kind of thrown off. For $45 I was worried that I was about to get ripped off. Because when I had first started looking for a good sniping barrel I had my heart set on a carbon fiber stiffi. They ran about $100 for the one I wanted. So I thought in my mind that you get what you pay for. But the reviews I had read about the smartparts' barrel were so good that I decided to chance it. Like I said, I've never regretted it.
