I've seen tons of orange guns.

Yes, you can wrap your gun. and you don't even have to wrap all of it, just enough so you can see where it'd break, so you could do a band of tape, move down a half an inch, and retape it. if a paintball breaks on the gun, there's going to be enough splatter on it that it'll get on the tape.

Vouch, trying to clean it off between games is harder then just replacing the tape itself often times

Besides it being a pain to clean off, its illegal according to the PSP anyway.

Quoted from 2010 PSP Rulebook.

9.3.2. Prohibited colors – any player found to be using a marker whose color may impede the judge’s ability to make a proper call, may be asked to discontinue the use of that marker.
9.3.3. A marker covered in whole or in part by a material of an absorbent or padded nature is illegal.

Those rules leave a lot to the imagination of the particular Ultimate Ref, but I wouldnt be surprised if hockey tape fell into the 'absorbent' category. Maybe not outright, but if Someone pressed the issue enough, I'm pretty sure you'd get told to use another marker. Besides, orange is a protected color anyway, so...

To never have to worry about getting pulled, dont use anything that could be misconstrued as being illegal. e.g. an orange marker, weather its covered in tape or not.

Edit: Yellow is the only protected color in PSP this year.

Again,depending on what series you play in...CXBL uses pink fill in CX4,RXL and MXL. i'm not sure about the CXBL division though. I think pink lady's are still legal though because they are under a certain percent of pink.

Pink paint is still made, Ive used it from time to time in local/regional series. pink guns are not illegal in any manner, in any rule book anywhere that Ive seen.

A few of you guys are making it sound like the protected color changes all the time. That's not the case at all. It was orange for at least the last 5 years.

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.
I gots me an orange g3 w/ ape oled board. Its purrty.
