Thread: Tape your muzzle!

  1. #1

    Tape your muzzle!

    When stalking on foot especially when its wet (as your more likely to slip) be sure to tape your muzzle with a piece of insulating tape to make sure your barrel is kept free from any debris and clogs etc the tape will have no affect at all on your shot and will help avoid any mishaps.

    I always put a strip of electrical tape over the end of my barrell when it is raining too, stops water getting in the barrell and throwing the bullet when I'm lining up that 18 pointer

    OK, as a bit of a thick newbie can I ask is there any particular tape that is prefferable to use so that it will release when the shot is fired or should the tape be removed before the shot is fired (Leaving an opportunity to for get to do this)?
    I'n not being awkward, I am just trying to learn as much as possible from you much more experienced guys!

    Frenchie, the column of air in the barrel in front of the bullet will push the tape off, no matter how good it is!, just try holding your thumb over the end of a bicycle pump whilst using it.

    Ordinary plastic electrician's tape does fine. One piece over the muzzle then a couple of wraps round the end of the barrel to hold it in place. I try and steer clear of bright colours, specially reds and yellows, though I don't know if that even matters.

    Just shoot through the tape, no worries.

    A target shooting pal tells me he favours using target patches, whatever keeps the water, rain and snow out is a good idea. The effect of water in the barrel can be quite significant in throwing a bullet off target.

    I use black duct tape over the end of my moderator, it's wide enough to cover all of the end.

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.
