Re: [IP] Quick Release Barrel



I just started using the sofset ultimate with the QR and the first time I
disconnected(while still in my training session) it was tough I think wombn
has the right idea to turn them a few times before inserting to loosen them
a bit.  When I took a shower this AM it was easier then the first time
yesterday.
