PSP, CFOA, most major tournament series's.

Not sure about tape, and if you could it'd have to be the entire thing.

Yellow is the Only banned color this year (if the tournament follows PSP rules). Though each year it could be different so I would stay away from orange,pink,yellow.

They only use one color fill? Don't they have a variety of paint to choose from at those big events? Why only have one color?

I didn't think raping your gun with hockey tape was good.

Raping your gun is just not recommended at all. Wrapping it in tape... probably illegal since it looks suspicious to refs. Now, I've yet to see an orange gun but would love to see one.

There's lots of gold/black colour schemes (Dye's advertising it on its site) so as long as its not completely yellow, I'm guessing it's alright. I've a gold, red and white Etek that's never had a complaint about color.

EDIT: Cool, that's what I thought.

gold is legal, it's just yellow that is illegal.

if there is less then 30% of yellow on the gun then it is allowed.

covering your gun in tape is fine, for both national series. what makes it look suspicious? If its yellow underneath the tape why does it matter? the point is that the ref needs to be able to see yellow paint break on it. I prefer black hockey tape for the job. there is no set % of yellow content. A ref can ban it from the field for any amount they choose (at least in the PSP, rule 9.3.2).

By the PSP rules, Orange guns are now allowed, Pink guns have been allowed for several years, as none of the series have allowed pink paint at an event for some time. Yellow is the only color allowed at PSP events.
