    Default Tape Over Barrel

    Anyone use tape or a cover over the end of the barrel, to keep snow/rain/debris out?

    Likely a good idea, but I've never bothered, nor do I know anyone who does.

    On my muzzle loaders, and on any rifle larger than .243 , as when traveling through the bush, if rifle is on a sling over the shoulder, it doesn't take much to have a piece of twig or shouch to fall down the barrel and cause a catastrophe when the trigger is squeezed
    on a shot.
    Duct tape is tougher than finger cots and stays on better in this case.

    Taping over a barrel makes me nervous. I can't get over the "obstructed muzzle" concept that's been ingrained for 60 years. I always carry a shotgun or rifle in the muzzle down position when the weather is really crappy. Taping over a barrel may be fine. It's just me.
    Did you know that 4/3 of people have trouble with fractions?
