Resident Evil 5 Cosplay

Question:
Since these characters come from a shooting game, you would generally want to have your costume come with weapons or at least hold one but, what are the rules for that for Cosplay?
I want to go to PAX 09 and bring my airsoft guns (with the orange tips) but what typically happens to weapon bearing cosplayers?

Also, anyone else coming as a RES 5 cosplayer so maybe we can meet up?

So I got a:
"No airsoft and it's kin allowed at PAX" answer.

What the heck does "and its kin" mean?
No guns period?!

Where can I find fake guns that don't look obnoxiously stupid fake?

Never heard that one before, lol, but my guess is if it shoots anything, even foam darts, its not allowed. That would probably mean that you'd have to make your own gun out of wood/foam/resin/etc.

Featherweight does AMAZING-looking guns, and isn't stingy about sharing his methods.

Ebay ftw.

It's a dummy gun, which you can paint gunmetal, and then paint the tip orange so people don't freak out. Or if PAX allows it, you don't have to.

But look around on eBay for dummy guns, you'll find all sorts for really cheap.
