I always carry one in a specially designed pocket in the 06 proto paints I wear.

You should always carry a squeegee. It doesn't way much. Doesn't cost much. Doesn't get in the way. And if you break a ball and don't have one, you're pretty much fucked.

I probably squeegee my gun about once every two cases of paint on average, and loan out my squeegee to some new player with a rental or cheap gun who broke paint once or twice every time I play.

i always forget them on the field and leave them in my gearbag. Thats the reason why eyes are in most guns, if you have clean working eyes you should never break paint ;)

I always carry mine with me. You just never know when you might need it, or even one of your team mates in case they haven't brought theirs with them!

I carry both a swab and a pull though squeegee. And those of you who don't carry them, please start carry them. Its annoying to other people when you ask for their's, seriously they're like $5 just buy one and bring it with you.
