I have a question relating to the shell casing incident. Is a cartridge considered a weapon and /or retricted from carry on baggage? I know the confisticate ammo, as my son forgot a 30-06 round in his pocket when we returned from hunting in Alaska. Actually he passed through detection ion Anchorage and found it before we were to board in Seattle. We contacted an airport screener and they took the cartridge. I didn't quetion it, as the cartridge was no big deal but I guess I never really paid any attention if cartridges are forbidden. Sounds like they are but is that what the law states?
When I flew armed, I carried my switchblade. I read later that TSA doesn't want that to happen... oh well.
The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

I've seen the pilot's fingernail clippers taken away, and the response out of earshot was...
"I didn't really need it anyway because....
......I've GOT the CRASH AX and I could just HACK everybody up"
"but I really don't need to do that because.....
I could just CRASH THE F___IN PLANE INTO THE GROUND!"
Then, at Washington Dulles, after 9/11: the National Gaurdsman with his M16 getting WANDED by TSA. That was classic.....
A girl I know (a blonde) went two round trips (four legs total during 2008) from Phoenix to the Midwest forgetting to remove her pepper spray from her key chain all four times (TSA busy with "SILICONE BREACH CHECK PROCEDURE").

In the People's Republic of Mass-holes, if you do not have at least an FID card (firearms ID) having a shell or any bullet component, live, spent, any part of, will land you in jail.
THAT is how screwed up the sheep are here. We can not buy components for reloading bullets via mail order catalog, it's insane.
My brother has a BB in his chest. My mother found out when he was in a car accident and the x-ray tech couldn't figure out what the spot on his chest was.
Couple years ago at the local air show at Willow Grove NAS, the enlisted folks working the gate tried to take my P38 off my keychain. I''ve had this one for 25 years or something, so I told 'em I'd put it in my car.
As the car was a good quarter mile or so away, I just went around back of a van and slipped into my sock.
On their behalf, though, it's possible that the newer troops today have never even seen a P38 . . .

Freedom ... must be fought for, protected, and handed on ... or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. -- Ronald Reagan, 1967

Don’t mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

While its really not illegal.......they officers really wonder why you have a handcuff key...... I guess 6 of one 1/2 dozen the other..... We had a county officer killed here because the suspect he arrested had handcuff keys hidden on him. He grabbed the officers gun in transport and shot him. Another story for another thread. But I guess it would be that the officers would wonder why a non-LEO has a handcuff key.... i have always had one......... but no, not illegal....

There's one in Readers digest where a National Guard outfit was returning from active duty. They were boarding a commercial jet to go back home. All were carrying M16s and sidearms. The security people wanded them and took away a female sergeants swiss army knife. This is while all were holding automatic weapons.....
