I ran into a little problem that I need some help with.
I was on business in FL this week and I happened to come across a gun shop that actually had some pmags for my ar-15. They would only sell me 5 of them... Still more than I can get anywhere else; which is zero....
I got a call from my company about 10 minutes ago informing me that we were returning home via airline. I was not planning on the return to my home in NH to involve an airline flight.
Can anyone tell me if there is any restrictions on carrying JUST THE MAGAZINE on a plane, hopefully in my carry-on luggage. No guns with me, no ammo with me.
The mags have never been used, are still in their factory packaging and are not "restricted" in either FL or NH, its a direct flight.
Sorry I didn't search, but its an early flight, so I don;t have a lot of time or options.

Why not just check them rather than risking some overzealous TSA agent, even if they are 'allowed'?

I'm not overtly opposed to checking the bag, but I didn't know if I had to declare them or do anything special with them. I didn't figure that I could carry on, but I didn;t know either.

There is no restriction on magazines, though I highly recommend they be in checked baggage and not in your carry-on. Less TSA hassle that way.

Double check with your airline, but there should be no issues.
If there are, pick up a flat rate priority mail box from the post office for $10 and mail 'em home to yourself.

I would put them in a checked bag and declair you have them. It's not illegal and I would let them know so they won't be jerks about it if TSA checks the bag after you check it in. I would imagine they will call TSA to check your bag when you declair you have them the same that they would if you declaired a firearm.

This sounds like the simplest method not to mention everyone likes getting mags in the mail........
pick up a flat rate priority mail box from the post office for $10 and mail 'em home to yourself.

Send them to yourself inside of a USPS priority ship box.
Problem solved for like $12.

Mail them home or check them in your baggage. Gun parts may get you in hot water in a carry on.
