Okay, so I found some prop guns I wanted to use for my cosplay for Sazh from FFXIII

This is it

Now I'm certain that the gun itself is okay to bring (but doesn't hurt to check here right?)

But basically my big question is, is it okay to paint (spray paint) the gun black and brown (but not modifications to the gun itself) to make it a lil more accurate color wise?

Don't quote me on this, but I would assume that if you leave the tip orange, you're fine. Further, here's what it says in the rules:

Gun props must have a blaze orange tip, and are required to be sufficiently unrealistic that a person must be able to tell that the prop is not real from across a room.(Transparent, flat image on cardboard, futuristic/unrealistic, blue rubber training props etc.)

LC Asuka is right. This gun is unrealistic enough that you can get away with just an orange tip.

Thanks to the both of you. I imagined it was okay, but I was told to make sure, so I got a lil nervous and asked to be safe. Thank you. I'll go ahead and do it now. :D
