Announced earlier today on the Save Paintball in California Facebook page, SB-798, the California legislation that would have required all “look-a-like air guns” to have bright colors has been amended to specifically EXCLUDE anything shooting a projectile over 11mm in diameter.
Which means the bill does not include paintball markers. 11mm is .43 inches, or .43 caliber, meaning that paintball guns shooting 43, 50, 60, 62 and 68 caliber paintballs are not covered by the bill.
However, 6mm is under 11mm and 6mm is the preferred airsoft projectile side, so it looks as if (pending further amendments), air soft is going to be taking a big hit.
