by the camo requirements, do you mean that we need to come kitted up in the gear we would normally wear to a game minus the guns (unless in proper transport bags) if we're "freelance" (no real team) and if we're on a team or just if we're on a genuine team?? just asking for clarification

I read it as dress-up if you want to otherwise your normal clothes are fine

explain the term "carry-on" weapon?  do you mean "Carry" weapon?  you are not allowed to have any weapon holstered. 

Camo requirements are not really requirements as much as they are permission.  Some people may want to come in their team uniform.  it's not required.  Street clothes are preferred - i wore bedroom slippers at the first one ;) - but you can come kitted up if you want

at the first expo we had guys go as far as to come in their full loadouts, minus mags and weapons. 

Cased rifles and pistols are fine to bring in as long as they are to be worked on by techs

show and tell is not allowed.  Please do not bring weapons just to show off.

you may show off any purchases you make though.  please keep weapons INSIDE the EXPO center at ALL TIMES if they are unboxed.  there will be a seating section at the rear of the room where you can sit down and fondle and show off your new purchase

in that case, im going to go with the "go big or go home" mentality and run full kit minus weapons and mags; btw, would i have to remove my rubber knife too or would that be considered a "wardrobe accessory" if i kept it where it goes on my vest??

No, not a 'carry' weapon.

Like, an airsoft gun that I carried around the expo.
