Intro: Paintball Barrel Cover

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 )

Step 1: Asssemble Materials

You will need a
-Knife
-tape measure
-old jeans
-bungie cord and plastic thingy
-marker
-paint (colour is up to you)
-pen
-printer paper
-ruler
-glue ( I used "NO more Nails") but any strong glue will do

Step 2: Template

Mark at the 2,4,6,8 inch lines on a standard printer paper

Step 3: Tracing

Trace onto jeans and cut out

Step 4: Renforcement

glue on 2x4 sheet onto bigger piece, this will add support where the ball breaks

Step 5: Folding

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

Glue it together, i recommend putting that template inside the jeans so it doesn't glue together

Step 7: Painting

Apply paint

Step 8: Competetion

All finished, you can now put lettering on it like: Get some, eat paint, or what ever you want.

    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.
