Friendly Reminder Or why proper BBD's are mandatory

BTW that kid should have gotten kicked off for not using his safety and being unaware of his muzzle. If you point your gun down always and have it on safe it should never come to you being thankful that you had your plug/bag on.

If you do plan on using one it should be a good one with a pointed tip, o-rings and an air duct.

But the fact that a marker CAN easily shoot a squeegee is plenty of reason not to use one as a BBD in a safe area.

I hadnt thought of that...so much for quality, right?
The one plug I do still use occasionally (mentioned in previous post) has got to be at least 10 years old. And I suspect it might last another 10 if I dont lose it...

Good point. The plug I use in my pump is pretty old (old PMI one) and it fits snuggly. But some of the newer Tippmann ones slip in and out with hardly any effort.
And thanks to this thread, I made a purchase from Palmers yesterday and threw in a Palmers BBD just to have another.

But I've got 5 barrel socks, 3 Tippmann ones (M98, X7, FlatLine, DW and SO), two of which are the oversized type.

Yeah, a lot of people don't need to be in possession of a paintball marker. A lot of people just do stupid things when they are. I especially hate it when someone takes their mask off on the field.
