    how strong is strong, if it can move the barrel it would be to strong to shoot, unless your barrel is loose.

    I would not worry about something like that, unless you are flying a flag from it or using it as a mast for a sail boat

    Falco, if wind of any strength could affect your barrel then what would be the point of such a barrel?

    Your body feels the wind more than anything else.Having a big Nikko or Lynx with a few sun shades fitted makes it even worse.

    if the wind is strong enough to bend a free floating barrel you will probably be splattered against the side of a building by the time you notice..
