If I spray paint an orange tip on my cardboard firearm, would that satisfy the requirements for weapons check? The rules that I see mention nothing about cardboard guns and I just want to make sure that weapons check won't confiscate it or do anything else.
Thank you for your inquiry.
The orange tip is only required if your prop firearm is a toy, look-alike, or imitation firearm. Since your firearm is made of cardboard it will be safe to pass weapons check as long as it does not fire any projectiles and follows the other guidelines laid out in Anime Expo’s Weapons Policy.
I hope the above information was helpful. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please let us know and we will be glad to assist you.
