Hello. I am hoping to play for the first time at Field 51 very soon... it has been a few years since I last played paintball.

What is the required marker safety gear (e.g. Barrel plugs vs. Barrel sleeves) if you bring your own gear to Field 51?

There was a time (and maybe still is) when fields were very strict about not using barrel plugs and only allowed barrel sleeves (or visa versa).

Thank you.

Barrel sleeves are the only barrel blocker allowed because plugs can be shot off very easily.

Thank you for the quick reply.

Any recommendations for brands or types that are more durable and/or preferred by regular players. Searching online it seems these http://www.rufusdawg.com/product/118-MUZ/Rufus_Dawg_Barrel_Muzzle.html are a unique design from many cloth style sleeves.

Scott - Thank you for the reply. Working with an older used WDP Angel LCD, a PMI Trracer pump, and Component Concepts Phantom pump (all of which have been in storage for a few years). Brand name and/or printing is not important - functionality is. I may give the Rufus Dawg Barrel Muzzles a try.

Those look like they are made out of a hard plastic like material which I can guarantee will stop a ball better than somebody's eye.

Thank you. I have ordered a couple. The product description writes an "injected rubber like material" - it sounds durable and as you noted to be more than capable of stopping a paintball (if used correctly). Safety is key.

As a follow up to this thread...

I purchased two yellow (there are other colors) Rufus Dawg Barrel Muzzles. They are *bright* yellow which makes them hard to lose and easy for others to see. The muzzles are made of flexible rubber material, and for the price (~$4) they are great products (less expensive than most barrel socks/sleeves currently on the market). They perform the important function of safely suppressing an accident shooting. A bonus feature is that the rubbery material is able to protect the end of barrel from damage (e.g. placing the barrel down on a hard surface - rocks, dirt, or someone stepping on your marker, etc.).

I would highly recommend them to anyone is looking for a good barrel sock/sleeve.
