I totally understand where you are coming from and I too thought the exact same thing. Most of us who played back in the day were all told barrels matter when it comes to accuracy hell, I have even owned a riffled barrel at one point. You definitely hit the nail on the head when you said that the paintball itself matters when it comes to accuracy. However like everyone else has said a paintball flying at 300 FPS regardless of what type of barrel it is will land in relatively the same sport (depending on the different variables). If you were testing it yourself outside, the wind & angle of the marker may have come into effect. Not to mention most paintball guns aren't completely consistent. Especially when you are firing with an unregulated marker the consistency isn't really there, not every shot is going to land in the same place. Also, the differences are so minuscule that it doesn't really matter which barrel you use, as long as its clean and you are using good paint it will be relatively accurate. After watching that video tho' I'm going out to buy a 18in sniper barrel so I can be a super sniper .

Its really sad that in 2013 we still have to have this argument.
And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

Paintball is technically not a solid object. Friction and therefore polish of the barrel are important. Technically gelatin becomes solution above 34 celcius (sweatty balls) and loses ability to flex below 4 celcius (cold ball breaks). You want a gentle grip on your balls, not too tight. Pun intended.
When the ball leaves the barrel. Gravity, windage, drag, etc all apply except traditional equations do not perform well below 350fps.
