For when he has to wade through water to get to a better position.

I wish paintballs and guns weren't so picky about water.

It's not possible to water "proof" it. Even with a barrel sleeve, you forgot about the trigger. Huge hole there. I have wanted to seal my A-5 better though, around the bolt paths. Oil leaks out between the receiver halves, which also means air thats could be doing more useful things leaks out.
