A barrel condom is basically something that fits over the end of your barrel to prevent misfires. They're mainly used in safe areas, and it's just a basic safety precaution. If you have a rifle, you'll need one in order to even be allowed to play in most events. For pistols, you just need to pull the mag out of the gun and keep it in a holster.
Most paintball fields where airsoft games are held require them. Action Paintball in Taylor, and Hell's Survivors require them for both paintball and airsoft guns. Pretty sure Futureball does as well. Not many of us play airsoft there however. Canto states that they are required at Hole in the Wall out in Bangor too.
It's a good idea to have at least one or two of them in the event you happen to drop or lose one on the field. They cost around $5, so you're better off having one on you when attending any airsoft event should they be required.
