Neither Minnesota State law nor Federal law requires an orange tip for ownership....so the MAA does not require them. There are different rules by cities and states, as well as a federal importation law which requires it but for Minnesota use, you do not need one.

Not only are they NOT required, but Erik hates orange tips.

And in some situations its the reverse....its illegal.
I rather use a "nightmare" that shoots like a dream over something that looks like a "dream" but shoots like a nightmare.

Don't fear the gun...fear the one that's wielding it!
