Where were you playing? You had your Apex sticking out, making it a valid target. Gear hits, at the majority of fields, count the same as a body/mask hit. Yelling at someone to quite shooting at it is the same as telling them not to shoot at you.
As for the set screw... Maybe wrap a layer or two of electrical tape around the barrel at that point. Giving the screw something to bite into should help.
That is not dead which can eternal lie,And with strange aeons even death may die.

a piece of electrical tape will not fit between the adapter id and barrel od. tolerances too tight for even a scrap of tape on each set screw

ya, that's where I have my set screws at. The tolerances are really tight on the adapter so you have to turn each screw in just a bit at the time or all of the screws won't thread in. This is what is probably happening with you. You've got one screw tightened in to much throwing the whole adapter outa wack. Once you get all the set screws tightened up equally, the adapter should stay put.

if it keeps falling off i'll jb weld the adapter onto the barrel and buy another j&j and swap them out

im playing tomorrow without it and then ill have a couple weeks until my next game and im going to try and fix it before then.
i was thinking about going to a lapco bigshot apex ready, until i met a guy at a game last week with a x7 with a 14" lapco bigshot apex ready. we were in the same battlement in a castle long balling together and i was way more accurate. i shot my buddys carver one with the stock apex barrel and noticed the difference in accuracy immediately. i do have power tube upgrade also tho.
anyways, i dont want to change my set up at all. so im thinking instead of locktight on the set screws and taking a chance. using jb weld and attaching the apex adapter onto the j&j barrel permanently.
