    Taping it all the times-when weather pushes me to do it.Electric tape.Shot thru it with muzzleloader ,rifle .Shot shotgun thru finger condoms(alas i do not like them-they are a pain to pull over front sigh ,and they rip readily).If fair weather -do not use nothing.

    Yea a sizable hunk of lead travelling at 2,000 ft/sec capable of going thru an 1" of solid steel at 100 yds may have a problem with a piece of elec tape...HaHa...

    That was the philosophy of a friend of mine, "I always carry muzzle down " till one time the muzzle went lower than he thought and unknowingly got some dirt [obstruction ] in the barrel and guess what happened ?, he wound up buying a new rifle after it blew up on him and he didn't get his caribou and ruined his hunt.
    Tape over the muzzle is not an obstruction, just a precaution/safety measure.
    Air pressure alone ahead of the bullet or shot will blow the tape off, proven by slow motion camera.

    He watched too much Looney toons as a kid.. Bugs sticking his finger in the barrel always make it blowup in Elmer's face.. Funny but it never worked for Daffy Duck..
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    Much tougher than a finger dome and stays put better than tape.

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    If necessary, I have found a piece of plastic wrap and a rubber band very handy to keep water out of my barrel.
