Can i use an actual sock as a barrel sock? And whats the best alternative for paintball pants. I have knee pads just want to wear some good pants over them. I was thinking ski pants lol.

get some baggy pants jeans work good too and if you take the elastic part of the barrel cover and put it on the sock then yes it would work but just the sock no

People cut into stuffed animals and put a boat load of padding to where the barrel sits inside, then they take elastic bands (like the ones found on real barrel covers) and sew and glue them in place.

TBH just buy a barrel sock because the most expensive one is the HK one at $15 and they are usually just $5.

Check your local shop or field. They might have some you can buy.

That is dangerous.

Be happy for getting sued for $10,000 or more because you shot out some kid's eye.

No i mean when you said get one off ans or something i won't have time and will have to not go or "rent" one. But just buying one at the shop is a good idea. Im gonna call them right now. Thanks for your advice guys.

NO. Just NO. A Paintball can EASILY blow through a regular sock.

for pants i would go with some shorts if its hot because you hardly ever get hit in the leg and if you do it doesnt hurt. If shorts wont work you can pick up camo pants at an army surplus store fairly cheap. and they are made out of more durable material

I couldn't tell you about pants because I bought some clearance pants at my local store and they are not even a brand name. you should have got a barrel bag when you bought your marker, if you lost yours go to your local store and their like $5, or if you know some of the guys that work at a local store they might just give you one
