Err... odd question.

It's not really a weapon, but would an emptied spraycan be allowed? I assure you that it will be empty so no accidental spraying could occur, and I have seen cosplayers in the past with spraycans, but I'm just making sure that it will be okay. Is there anything else I can do to the can to make sure that it cannot spray besides emptying it (such as gluing the tip so it cannot move)?

You can bring the can as long as it is

1) Belonging to a costume in which the character has a spraycan.
2) It must be completely empty
3) It must lose it's ability to actually spray compressed air. (I.E. Glue, Tape, etc.)

after confirming its empty........ (very important, don't be stupid)

I would say use one of these:

or a nail and a hammer. and pierce it so that we have no doubt that it is empty.

I need a final YES/NO on this, I've been asking alot but its hard
to cosplay a military base character without a prop weapon sadly.

So I need to clearly free my mind on this.

I can DISABLE all moving part & leave the ORANGE tip on each of my gun.



Or as suggested from someone:

NERF Gun: (I will paint this Black but leaving ORANGE tip)



This is my character:

Thanks for the info, you two. :D I actually opted to make a fake spraycan instead, so no worries there. I can still stop by and get it check out and peacebonded if you like, but I doubt cardstock a couple empty ribbon spools can do much harm. ;P
