On a seperate thread on eye protection we have had a bit of a deviation with regard to an insurer having added a requirement to wear eye protection in safe areas due to a previous incident
(Someone dry fired a sniper into a friends face and shot the last B.B. into their eye)
I mentioned barrel blocking devices / barrel condoms from Paintball, only to have it pointed out to me that they already exist in airsoft!
The short(ish) version of the barrel blocking device (BBD) history in Paintball was at first there was none, and with single shot pump actions etc there was some physical safety complete with a very small initial community that generally had real gun safety experience.
This then went on with people often sticking a barrel cleaner/fluffy down the barrel, next a barrel plug
Both could be shot out of the barrel making more of a projectile with a negligent discharge, so the barrel condom was born, which originally was a cover for the barrel blocker to hold it if there was a ND. Now they can be used on their own (as long as it’s a proper modern one with sufficient material)
