This is a cover for your paintball gun so you don't shoot any one off the field. This is NOT a substitute for a properly manufactured safety device, it is merely a how -it-is-made instructables. I take no responsibility for any injury or death caused by this instructable. Use at own risk Inspired by Paintball Borg (Pretty much the same idea but my version )

Practice folding the paper to see how to fold the jeans, one end should be open and the other closed.

Step 6: Glue that sucka together

You need more reinforcement at the bottom, like the plastic from a milk bottle folded in half and glued in.

IF you really want, the No More Nails dries as hard as a rock, I've tested the barrel cover on multiple occasions and it works like a charm.

Please know that any paintball barrel sock sold must meet ASTM Committee F08 Standards. Insurance regulations call for socks or sleeves that meet these requirements, and while this is a cool project it is NOT a substitute for a properly manufactured safety device. As good as this looks some things just shouldn't be DIY projects, for your safety and the safety of those around you.

I wasn’t implying that this was a substitute for a proper paintball barrel, it was merely an informative Instructable that showed you HOW it was made. If it makes you feel better, I will post this in my intro.
