add super redhawk and handi rifle, 870, 500, 930, tompson center to that list. long guns suck. its like dragging a boat paddle through the woods or anywhere else . just a waste of good metal that could be used to make more guns. :/
Ha! That's pretty good. Though, it depends on what I want to do with it. For a shotgun or pistol-cal carbine (or .22lr), I definitely want the shortest barrel possible. For rifle-caliber weapons, though, I like what is gained by the extra barrel length. For a .243 the difference in velocity between an 18" barrel and a 26" barrel is indeed a few hundred FPS.
