Is there any law against painting your handgun orange? If you had a green plastic holster with a yellow smilieface and some big silver conchoes with tassels, holding a solid orange pistol, I'll bet it would reduce the MWG calls for open carriers. But, you may experience a spike in 5150s.:thumbsup:

What does this have to do with the question at hand? I don't believe the weapon in question would have been purchased for commercial purposes.

It restricts what he might be able to do with the pistol. The OP didn't say, for example, if he was a commercial Duracoat refinisher, or whether he wanted to have it painted by a professional. Context matters, so I cited the relevant code, and he can decide if it applies to his situation.

What if you paint it rainbow and went around San Francisco passing out condoms and just say your fighting STD's. You might have to wear leather to get away with it but who cares:eek:

Aren't some of those colors set aside for training or toy weapons? Might be a bad idea...

Yeah, invisible paint is cool. Actually, the Japanese are working on, and I've seen demos on TV, an invisibility cloak. No, I'm not kidding, it's a real hi-tech way of re-directing light. Do some searches, you'll see

The 92 is a bit busy, but the 1911 is quite handsome in red.;)

12020. (a) Any person in this state who does any of the following is punishable by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year or in the state prison:
(1) Manufactures or causes to be manufactured, imports into the state, keeps for sale, or offers or exposes for sale, or who gives, lends, or possesses any cane gun or wallet gun, any undetectable firearm, any firearm which is not immediately recognizable as a firearm, I've thought of this but after reading this I changed my mind.
