Always check your carry on twice. Flying out to Wyoming for a coyote contest... Always carry my drake bag. In check in I get pulled out thinking dang thought I checked the bag as the tsa agent pulls out 3 emptys and a loaded 7 mag round.... Exciting for people who don't know bout guns... 45 min later sure I am marked but look like still get to fly

I'm sure people were freaking out over nothing. I get to deal with the sheeple all the time...

Made a trip to Idaho once. Rifle and ammo both in checked luggage. DFW TSA folks were a bit panicky when I checked/showed the rifle but were semi-ok with it all. Had one small carry-on.

Got to the Boise airport, grabbed my gear and got to my room. Opened the carry-on and low and behold, there were 10 rounds of loaded ammo. No idea how it made it through.

Makes for an exciting morning, I'm sure.

Glad you didn't miss your trip Derrick.

I just got back from a pheasant hunt. I pulled out my shotgun, it was fully loaded. Passed right through TSA!

Dang that could have been a bad experience. Unload your gun for transport.

Did that from Tulsa/Dallas once. Had a 17 hmr magazine with 3 rds in my carry on. Sad thing is i carried it from dallas to Tulsa with no issues. I now have a record with TSA and Homeland security.
You Will get the notice in the mail in a month or so.

My son got the TSA treatment at MAF in Odessa/Midland. He had one way ticket to DFW going to pick up car, grabbed back pack he travel with and threw couple days clothes in it. Forgot when he had taken trip week before he had misplaced mag to my Springfield....we found it or TSA found it! He made plane but I lost mag with 7 rounds in it, he got letter couple months later saying matter was dropped. TSA looks at one way tickets with single male with piercings and tattoos as good opurtunity do something just short of body cavity search. The firearm components gives them more motivation!
