    Never had a problem leaving mine exposed, but I don't put it in places it shouldn't belong

    Electrical tape. Once across, twice around.

    I hope you guys mean duct tape.

    Electrical tape is fairly narrow,eh


    On a more serious note, look up finger cots. I put a thread on here a few years back and it got deleted. Just looks like a small condom...

    One single piece of clear, 2" wide packaging tape stuck to end of barrel, then bunched around it. Sticks better than e-tape. The "finger condom" sounds like it might be a good thing. I'm not familiar with them.

    Make it 5 for electrical tape. One strip over the barrel, and then a couple of wraps around the barrel, to retape after shooting.

    Duct tape is a little messier, and the balloons don't look as clean to me; I'll be a black tape guy for the duration.

    OK, which spineless moderator or administrator changed the thread. You need to grow a pair, Condom and safe sex commercials are all over TV. What is your problem. Guess what they are called Muzzle Condoms.

    only thing about finger cots is they're very thin and rip easily (on brush, or in my case on the front site).

    Electrical tape works. So does old rubbers.

    electrical tape.
    and i keep a strip on my stock to retape the muzzle after the shot.
    one time i leaned my rifle against a stump to take a leak, and then when i turned back to it there was a tiny rock sitting right on the muzzle tape...
