Paintball Markers Carry On Flights ok? or check it?

I'll be traveling coast to coast, and was wondering if a paintball marker is allowed as a carry on item. Since I don't have any checked baggage, would this be an issue or would they ask to check it. I'll be flying United/Continental/Delta. If anyone has any experience with this I'd appreciate it, thanks.

Ive flown Delta a number of times from the southeast to the midwest and they just ask to check it each time. you cant have the tank because of the compressed air but the marker is fine as long as it is in a box.

Paintball guns just have to be in checked baggage (you don't have to declare them as they are not firearms).

Air tanks CAN be carried carry on, or in checked baggage. However, the regulator must be disconnected from the tank completely because they will look inside the tank.

See that's what I don't get... I brought my gun to the airport, checked it and the tank, with the reg off but they still confiscated it and would not give it back.
