Put it in your checked luggage, remove regs from tanks, no 12 grams. Check with your airline for any special requirements they may have.

Notify the ticket agent that you are travelling with paintball gear that MAY be mistaken for more dangerous goods. They should send you to the Oversized Baggage Handling, and the agent there will inspect it and tag it as okay. At least, this is what happened when flying internationally from Canada to the US with my SSR.
If the 'gh' in enough is pronounced 'f', the 'o' in women as a short 'i' sound, the 'ti' in nation as 'sh', and the 'i' in radio is pronounced as an 'ee' sound, then technically: "Ghotii" is pronounced "Fishy"

I flew to OK D-Day several times and never had a problem crossing the border or boarding the plane. Make sure any tanks you have are empty (Show 0 on the gauge and be able to push the pin in by hand) and notify security that you've got paintball markers.
Alternately, Peggy at the Bunker runs a really good ship in/ship out service for people travelling to the game from a ways away. You can mail the gun to the field, and they're help you with mailing it back home afterwards. A lot of the Aussie and Canadian members of the CEF did that back in the day, or bought a ****load of stuff before the game and mailed it to the field for cheap.

the reg on your tank might need to be completely removed.
also, i did have a nice encounter with TSA after getting two micro-squalls from PPS...
for future flights:
print out the TSA pages about paintball gear and have a copy on you and also put a copy in your checked paintball bag wrapped around your marker(s).

Checked Baggage only. For a milsim marker I'd defintely make someone aware of what is in the bag.
Print out a copy of the TSA regulations and stick one in your bag, keep one with you:
You'll need to remove the regulator on any air tank, they need to be able to look into the cylinder. You can put the reg back on when you get to the event, finger tight is fine, the pressure holds the reg in.
If you don't have a hard bag for your gear, consider either a hard case for your mask like Exalt's or you can take that as a carryon.

Personally I'd think about flying with a Starter Pistol. They are legal everywhere, cheap, and treated as a firearm when flying.

I'd just plan on removing your tank reg. It would suck to leave it on a degassed tank and have them remove it. I bought a couple cheap strap wrenches that I always kept in my luggage for flying with my gear.
