    Taping End of Barrel

    Might of been posted before? presume the same applies to taping a mod also, as lots do apply tape to stop water & debris entering the barrel.
    Could be of interest to some, does not contain long range shooting so will-should not offend?

    Some masking tape at the muzzle of the gun (if unmoderated) or at the fore end of the moderator keeps water from entering the barrel on a rainy day. This is what I was told.

    I usually apply a piece Cellotape to the end of the moderator to stop any moisture getting in as I am getting my kit together in the house. I generally replace the Cellotape after firing a shot. Regards JCS

    When Mr Bullet leaps out of his case, that tape is off before he gets a half inch up the barrel, the column of air in front of the bullet just pops the tape off, in the case of a barrel "Obstruction" this is not the case, an immediate pressure spike is what causes a barrel bulge, or even a burst, rain drops down the bore, or rain/oil, on your cartridge as it is chambered can do damage.

    The collection sack cut off an UNUSED condom works just fine for me. No need for the 'decorative' or extra hardwearing type!
