Hello, I would like to suggest a new topic forum. How about the use of Condoms on Rifles and Shotguns?

Yes, CONDOMS are a great way to protect your rifle and shotgun barrel. The use of condoms to keep rain and dust out of rifles goes back to the Vietnam War when soldiers would cover their M16 Rifles with a condom to keep the monsoon rains out.
This practice is also great for hunters whereby they often encounter rain, sleet, and snow.
The condom protects the firearm, and when needed to be used, the bullet or pellets simply pass right through the thin non-lubricated latex material covering the barrel end.
Please see my Instructional Video showing how to properly cover the end of your barrel.
Note the video has no sound:
Instructions for Applying a CONDOM to a Rifle Barrel:
Step 1) Acquire a Non Lubricated Latex Condom (any brand).
Step 2) You will also need a small rubber band or twisty tie.
Step 3) Remove the condom from the wrapper.
Step 4) Securing the Rifle, gently slide the condom over the tip of the barrel until it is fully extended. Caution, do not pull the condom too tight at the end of the barrel you will tear it.
Step 5) Using either a small rubber band or a twisty tie secure the condom around the barrel so it does not come off.
Note: I use a rubber band to install the Condom, then apply a twisty tie closer to the bottom of the condom to keep it from moving, see the 2 photos below of my DPMS Panther AR-15 5.56 Carbine:
