Ray Gong of Top Gun Paintball on Youtube

In 1988 paintball guns were classified as Firearms under New Jersey law and required a permit to own and operate.

Ray Gong of Top Gun Paintball NJ filed suit to challenge this law and claimed that paintguns were safe to use with the proper safety precautions taken. With the help of Bud Orr, Russel Maynard and Jessica Sparks won the right for New Jersey paintballers to own paintguns without a permit.

This was an important case for paintball since it established a legal precedent that paintguns were not firearms.

Over the next couple days I will be posting a couple Top Gun cockers and a sniper from my collection and that I have gathered pictures of.

Unfortunately Gong also had to deal with a nightmare of a zoning battle which I believe caused him to relocate his field several times before establishing Top Gun Paintball in Cream Ridge where it is now.

And here is Ray Gong’s youtube channel where he has uploaded some of the original footage from the paintball testing in the trial and new footage from various New Jersey Stations covering paintball and his zoning battle.
