Hi! I've been to a few cosplay events, shooting pictures here and there. I am curious as to how some of their weapons can look so realistic and still not run afoul of the law. I've been to the ICA museum and they do say these things are not allowed. Anyone care to comment?

You can test the weapons on yourself. If still alive it's allowed. :bsmilie:

They relaxed ruling alot..
Used to be anything that resembles a firearm is not allowed. Eg. Even a pink rifle.

Not they more concerned if it shoots a projectile, any projectile..

But just wait until people start robbing with those replicas then we see if law change bk..lol

Perhaps it's possible that some really have the proper permits*, it's also possible that some own their stuff illegal but just trying their luck in a large crowd.

*Of course, even those with permits are supposed to abide by the clause that states that these items "must be kept in a dwelling house and not to be carried in any public place without any lawful purpose."

Caesars sell only replica antique pistols because of regulations as posted above, that it may alarm citizens if seen outside.

Was surprised suddenly everywhere started selling 1:1 scale rifles..

But buyers seem to be pretty disciplined so far, no heard issues of kids running ard in neighbourhood with them..?

I am sure cosplay events have special permits for within event halls.
