Paintball Sock as an Airsoft Safety device? You Decide…
Thumpy’s VIDEO Test…Is a Paintball Barrel Sock a SAFETY device for Airsoft…or creating a danger itself?
Thumpy’s 3-D House of Airsoft has word from several Field Owners that new insurance regulations are on the way next year…mandating some type of barrel cover for ALL guns handled outside of safety netting at events. Right now, most fields only have paintball-style barrel socks…a nylon reinforced “pocket” that covers the muzzle of paintball guns, held in place by some type of elastic harness. We obtained one popular model this weekend, and when we put it to a non-scientific but totally real-world test, we got a NASTY surprise!
