Barrel Condoms?

When did barrel condoms become all the rage?

I used to have the aluminum barrel plugs. We'd run a cord through the center hole then attach a carabiner to it so we could clip the plug to our belt loops, etc. during games.

Now I've learned that some fields don't consider plugs an allowable safety device since they could dislodged from multiple shots.

HAHA! I guess I got a lot to relearn about the sport.

Pretty much since electronic paintball guns have become all the rage. I know what barrel plugs you're talking about, and they're completely fine if you're using them in a PGP or similar gun. But in one of today's modern paint spewing beasts they're just not enough. My local field is going to socks only in 2007.

I've noticed that the fields around here are going socks only as well.

If you have a 3 ounce trigger & nothing but a plug in the barrel....things could go hairy after a couple of shots, I could see it hurting someone.

Just wait; in a couple of years the AGG kiddies will be selling and trading old barrel plugs the same way they do with goggles straps now.

I called it!

I say we horde 'em all now and control the market.

I bet one of Shartley's barrel bags could last longer than 15 shots. They're pretty stout.
