    I am surprised they gave you such a hard time! I was caught with 10rds in a mag at Indianapolis International, and it was no big deal. They told me anything over 10rds they will have to do paperwork, they took my bullets and gave me the chance to mail the mag to myself, I couldn't, so the IPD LEO took me addy and mailed it to me!

    Maybe cause of the different States matter on how TSA handles these kind of things, I don't know.

    P.S. there was never any talk of a fine!

    As for the veteran reference, just go up and ask one who was in WWII, Korea or even Vietnam. He will laugh in your face about one single cartridge on an airplane.

    The WWII vet never had to deal with the threat we deal with on a day to day basis. I don't see anything in the world wrong with keeping a single cartridge off of an airplane. If I remember correctly, the 9/11 hijackers used box cutters. I bet that a WWII vet might not find box cutters a very big threat either but they managed to use the to kill 3,000 plus people.

    Are we a nation of cowards? Yea maybe so, but keep parts and pieces of fire arms off of airplanes is not a symptom of national cowardice. It is far more a prudent step.

    Instead of calling names why not debate and discuss the possibilities of sneaking a weapon on a plane. Care to explain why it would not be easier to get a weapon on a piece at a time as opposed to all at once?

    Think about it for a sec.
    Would you want someone that probably can barely recognize a firearm, has probably never fired one, swaps it for residue, and earns crap for pay, fondling your expensive rifle?

    Because of folks like the TSA, I hate flying and absolutely refuse to do so unless unavoidable. I'd rather spend a week driving and a couple hundred more in gas than put up with their arrogant attitudes and draconian policies. Plus, I'll be armed in some manner and able to defend myself throughout the entire trip.

    As someone that flies regularly...4 to 6 flights a week...I wish I could add something constructive...other than Happy Easter!

    The TSA is nothing better than all the other government work programs. Good or bad, it is what we, in the Republic of The United States of America, either want or are willing to accept.

    I look forward to the day that the average American wakes up to our freedoms being eroded and our voices being silenced...but that's for another day and forum.

    I'm glad you got thru the ordeal relatively unscathed and good luck in future flights!

    About 20 years ago, I had to fly out of a large Nor Calif to see a client in Liberal, KS. Direct flight. When I was next in line in baggage check-in, I remembered that I had my fully loaded SW Model 59 in my check-in bag. I don't remember exactly which laws I was seriously bruising, or maybe I've managed to purge that from memory, but I know I was doing something wrong at that time. Knowing that I would have aroused major suspicion by quickly exiting the line with my bag, I continued through check-in and kept really cool. No baggage inspections then.

    When I landed in Liberal, I just about ruined my pants! Waiting for ME was a friggin' uniformed police officer, holding a sign with my name on it. I just knew I was busted. So I go over to him and he introduces himself as the nephew of my client and that he was there to offer me a ride to meet my client! And I was glad that I had extra underwear packed around my Model 59.

    And no, I never did confess to him (I'm pretty sure he would have laughed his butt off) until now when I'm pretty sure the statute of limitations has expired. That and I'm a lot more aware of what lawful now, especially in CA and travel-related.

    Yes, it is.

    There are a few who probably get off doing so, sure. Like any group of people, there will be a share of them who are of this sort. Though, for most of them, I'm certain, the mindless automatons doing it don't realize they've got a choice any more than the bureaucrat who walloped on the OP at the airport.

    The world is what we make of it. That is, if we'd make something of it. Right now, the blender seems to be set to somewhere between "frappé" and "liquify."

    Glad they gave you a break, certainly the one bullet was not a weapon of mass desturction but by the letter of the law, you cold have had some trouble.
