    Barracuda... Let me start off by saying .. WOW.

    Posted by Frank Boyett on Apr 5th 2023

    This is a sexy ass gun. When I took it to the range, I got several compliments. Very aesthetic! Light weight and shoots very well. Doesn’t come with sights, but that’s not a big deal. I mounted a Holosun red dot on it the day it came in. Bang for buck, this gun is worth every penny. Highly recommend getting one. Just waiting for them to make the barracuda pistol version.
