Since horseplay can knock a marker out of a holster then who's to say horseplay can't slide the BBD out or off?

No, they go off because of a chain reaction of physics.

If a multimillion dollar 40mm autocannon prototype can suffer a mechanical failure that results in an unintentional runaway discharge of the weapon, then what makes you think a cheap paintball marker is immune to an accidental discharge?
I have been holding a firearm that fired without pulling the trigger. We later determined it was a safety malfunction, if you pulled the trigger with the safety on it would fire when you took the safety off.
In paintball, Automags have been known to fire without pulling the trigger (albeit rarely).

That's no reason not to use one.

This.

I reload 12grams while my pistols are holstered, so I use a short open stiff holster. I use the new Tippmann shorter ones now, perfect length!



Should I need to pull a pistol from it's holster in the deadzone, I put the sock right back on. I don't like closed holsters because if someone wants to check out your pistol in the deadzone, you have to half undress to stay safe

I saw a barrel plug cause a paintball gun to do a reasonable speargun imitation once long ago, but they're not allowed at HS anyway, barrel socks only.

I didn't say it was a reason not to use one did I? If it was taken that way I didn't mean it to. I was just adding to the horseplay argument. I always use a BBD of some kind. My style of choice is the TPX spike.

I know my skunkworks holster will work with the barrel bag on the T8.1 and the pistol holstered. I played a few weeks ago and they told me the field rule was holstered guns needed no bags but was personally not comfortable with that.

In addition, any blow-back marker will have potential energy stored (compressed spring with hammer weight). If anything is worn or not mating properly you could have the hammer slip and fire the gun.

It can. Most locals I play with are of a rural mindset, safety is casual at Mersey Road Paintball where I play. Barrel blocker infractions are common. I rarely see a holstered pistol style marker that is plugged/bagged. The refs are hardly proactive about real safety too.
