First of all, I don't shoot IR 50/50 so this sporter barrel is of no consequence to me, although it may be interesting. Secondly, Bill Calfee cannot force this barrel upon the game. The rules will either accept it or deny it.
With that in mind, please feel free to attack the concept all you wish. I don't care and I doubt that Bill does. However, do not make snide comments about "personality" or perceived alliance. It will be edited or deleted. I assure you that should Bill Calfee use a negative attack upon any of you, it will be treated the same. However, if you do not have the maturity to simply attack the concept and not the person, refrain from posting.
