I haven’t fired it yet but it’s a short barrel 357 with no shroud. It will be too loud and powerful for a backyard so I need to go to the range to shoot it. That would be the same for any big bore air gun (even if it came shrouded).
Also, I need to get a thread reducer to be able to fill it as it won’t connect to a standard 1/8″ quick disconnect as it comes.
The question about the advantages over a firearm is a fair one. It applies to any big bore air gun for me. I love my air guns because I can use them every day at home as they are quiet and not powerful enough to go through my backstop and accidentally kill a child a mile away. I guess some people will see a point in big bore air guns and others won’t.
There are a few advantages to big bore air guns over firearms though. The Barracuda is a short barrel rifle. You can go as short as you want with air guns without running into legal troubles like with firearms. You can get an LDC for an air gun without needing a special license and in some states, like mine, civilians can’t get a license for a firearms moderator at all.
The ammo will be cheaper than 357 firearm bullets.
If noise and power aren’t an issue, there will be some scenarios where people can legally use an air gun in places where firearms are prohibited.
That’s all I can think of off the top of my head.
