Hello, I'm a cadet with a PD in California, and a huge hobby of mine is airsoft. I play on a team with full size replica rifles and military style BDUs. Camoflauge is a must, and the blaze orange tip on the gun is of no help to me in hiding. I know that most people just paint over them, but I just am wondering what the law actually states about painting the orange tip black. I read the law, but I can't find a solid definition of whether it only needs the orange tip for purchase/shipping, or all the time. If I painted over it it would have the black tip, but I would have the tip wrapped in orange tape anytime I wasn't at the airsoft field. I would only have the orange tape off after I took it out of the car and was on the private property of the airsoft field. I asked some of the officers that I know, but they all have no idea.
Oops, typed the title wrong, "Law" instead of "Lawn", I'll try to figure out how to edit the title.
