That's a crappy deal cause even if they just punched a hole in that yellow plug they give you and put a bungee on it that would better than what is currently being offered. But look on the bright side now we have reason to buy sexy lady barrel bags!

To many people shot with improperly used barrel plugs. But any improper bbd is unsafe. Its the insurance companies requirements for the field as I understand it.

It may just be Ontario, but I was told by the owner of the field I worked at that they were forced to switch a few years back. Several of the guys I know at Pro shops have said the same thing. I can't speak for BC or Alberta, but I know that here in Ontario they are illegal.

Whether fields abide by that is a totally different story, though.

Yep, every field I can think of that I've been to in Ontario no longer allows barrel plugs, you have to use a bag. Many of them even have signs posted saying exactly that. Once in a while you see someone using a plug rather than a bag, and once in a while those people get away with it (probably because they're clearly adults and look experienced enough to not be an idiot about it), but for the most part, plugs are no-go.

Seems to have standard Nelson down-the-barrel velocity adjustment. That's good.
Also looks like the gun might be compatible with the Trracer's weaver-rail pump handle, if you leave out the underbarrel return spring and guide rod.
