    My wife was wondering too how TSA missed the bullet at KCI airport.

    I told her because TSA was too busy groping and feeling up all the cute women headed for the Bahamas, and not looking at the X-ray machine.

    When you hire minimum wage robots, you don't get intelligence and the ability to use discretion.

    If it was a box of ammo, or several loaded magazines in the pack is one thing, but a single .32 cal bullet hiding the the corner fold at the bottom of a pack, most people would assume it was just over looked at home, retrieve it, dispose of it, and let the guy be on his way.

    But, we live in a world of idiots and sometimes the idiots bite.

    They must've thought he could throw that bullet really fast and hard...Stupidity, never ceases to amaze me. Thats as bad a kids being suspended/expelled from school for drawing a picture of a gun. "Zero tolerance" means zero common sense in my book.

    At least they let him go. Imagine it was a hollow point and he was in Jersey.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    Oh my gawwwd... I shudder to think! He'd be thrown in a dungeon and left to rot until he was an old man if it happened in Jersey! They are a bunch of pin-heads in Jersey.

    "His ordeal began last Friday when airport security in Freeport, Bahamas found a .32-caliber bullet inside his fanny pack. He was charged with possessing ammunition and sent to a jail in Nassau. Lapp says he thinks he left the bullet in his pack after a hunting trip."

    .32ACP or .32Win? The former is easier to miss and the latter is more likely to be taken on a hunting trip.

    Either way, this is why I thoroughly check all my luggage before a trip.

    If this had happened in Mexico he'd still be there.

    Gee, I will definitely feel safer, if I ever go to the Bahamas, knowing how thorough they are.

    Common sense has left the planet.

    The terrorists have won. Panic is still well embedded from 9/11 until now and the stories will continue I'm sure.

    I was at the shooting range a day before I took a flight to Canada,as I was checking in at registration I reached in my change pocket for something and discovered a round of 223 I had put in my pocket.Counter lady called LEO he showed up I explained situation and even showed him my CHL ,he said I'm gonna have to confiscate the cartridge and I said no problem thanks.I am just glad it wasn't at the TSA screening area.I learned that whenever I fly I will physically lay anything going in my pockets out in plain sight and not just transfer from one pair of pants to another without looking

    Range/hunting bags, travel bags, keep them separate.

    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    As stated here: unless it's checked luggage I keep everything separate.

    Check the soles of your shoes too...I've found rounds of ammo embedded in my shoe's treads.

    One time thru JFK the TSA asked me to unload the magazine even thought the airlines website said it was ok. I unloaded the mag and placed the rounds into a box of ammo that I packed for the trip. As I lifed the suitcase and handed it off to TSA there was a round left on the table. I looked at the same time as the Port Authority officer looked at it. I picked it up and ask him if he could dispose of the round. He said no problem. Not worth getting suit case back for one round.
