you are allowed to. the site won't mind and once you are there a police raid (as if that would happen anyway. I can't imagine the site owners would not inform police of it) would not go for someone who has a green gun.

What I do is Tape my guns at home, to make sure I have enough tape, then remove it untill you are at a skirmish.

EDIT: after reading that, I think the easiest thing to say is YES you CAN do it, just be sensible about it and don't use black tape.

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

I guess its because that would be making it realistic which is against the law.

Perhaps rather than taping it you could use a gun wrap or scrim netting. Would be easier to put on and take off at the site and would probably look better.

Personally i think camo tape looks terrible.

apparently theres nothing in the law that says you cant just spray the gun black/rif colours. The whole 2 tone thing is apparently somthing manufactures and sellers did to cover their backs from the vcra so, yeah just spray it real colours i guess.
when it come to what paint to use, krylons pretty good stuff, but youll need to use a scratch pad on the part you want to spray 1st, so the paint doesnt just rub off :)

I dunno what you have been reading but the is a majour NO NO

Changeing the colour of a 2 tone to make it look more reolistic is seen as manufacturing a RiF which is illegal unless you have a defence

And "the wohle 2 tone thing" is so that it dosnt look realistic so a cop with a real steel MP5 dosnt think you are a threat and shoot you

If you have been doing this i would recomend you get rid of them or get a defence sharpish

Thanks

half and half, aren't law officers using bright blue weapons for training / blank fire weapons?
