Sorry, I don't care if a leprechaun stole it, either use a BBD or leave the premises.

That is usually what the "explanation" involves. "Where do you think you are going without a barrel sock?" I don't think I have seen anybody leave the field with a squeegee stuck down the barrel. If you lost your barrel condom, you can borrow a big ugly orange rental one. Nobody said it was acceptable. In fact, I have never seen anybody argue with the staff about it.

If you want to talk about hilariously worthless barrel plugs, I have one for you.

The bottom silver piece of the expansion chamber on that 'cat detaches and fits neatly into the end of the barrel. But, it is also a block of sharpened aluminum that only fits loosely into every barrel I own. I sold the Thundercat a year back or so and the expansion chamber with it. A shame, really.
