Nota Bene: In the commercial paintball world, 12" is generally accepted 
as the point of dimishing returns for CO2 power. Has to do with 
expansion and flow rates, barrel volume, and the time / distance it 
takes to accelerate a paintball to 300 fps (common field limit).

'Course, that didn't stop me from making a 28" bbl... but I'm using an 
air compressor, and I'm more concerned about the "cool factor" than 
efficiency and ROF.
