here in california technically it is, but most ( 90 % ) of fields do not enforce it, if you get caught playign in public land with no orange tip you can land in a heap of trouble, but the way I see it if I was walkin around in the streets with an orange gun I'm asking for it anyway so I treat it like I do my real guns, with respect, and transported in it's case.

Most peoiple I know have either an orange flash hider and a black one, or an orange muzzle cover that cant be shot off. Keep the orange on untill you're about to go into the game.

And if yours is glued on or something to that sorts and cant come off without breaking it OR you just wanna keep it on just when not playing you can cover it with black electric vinyl tape.

as for me, it is better to place the orange tip always so as to prevent undesirable confrontations with the authority...we may never know what directives the may receive in a certain instance...so for me it is better to stick to the general rule...i made an alternative in my AEG though. instead of putting the orange tip, i wrapped a sticker of the same color on the barrel; just few centimeters from the flash suppressor. so far it didn't get me into trouble. i always carry my gun license though...

technically yes it is illegal (a felony i believe) to transport an airsoft gun with out the orange tip inside the united states, and yes folks, during game you are transporting it...unless of course you aren't moving at all and just standing in one place the whole game...
