Guns and ammo (in original boxes) were locked in separate lock boxes and cabled to the inside of my suitcase. Guns and ammo were declared and inspected at check in. Suitcase was then locked and I had the key. I got home very late and didn't unpack the suitcase until the next afternoon. I put the suitcase on the bed and thought "Hmm, no lock." I unpacked the suitcase and found the items that weren't mine. I thought that somehow I had ended up with items from our friends house.

The TSA has no check or balances. They do what they want, how they want to do it with little oversight or fear of repercussions.


I do it the other way around. I pack everything in a rifle case including my firearms and lock it with my own locks. I declare at the ticket agent and TSA either checks it right away or calls me over the PA system and I unlock it for them. At one point, a TSA agent suggested not packing my computer in the rifle case because it was guaranteed they'd want to open the case and take a look when it went through the scanner.

Similar to above, have heard people check locking camera equipment cases with a flare gun inside just to keep people out.

You suggesting undue number of transvestites among TSA? That may be better answer. LOL

Your remark was funny too.

I lock my handguns in a Nano vault, cabled to the inside of the suitcase.

Does TSA has master keys for just the TSA approved locks or do they have master keys for the metal vaults the guns are locked in?

Pretty sure that it's only the TSA-approved locks.



A mind is a terrible thing.

Sometime back, TSA allowed a news crew to film them. They got some clear pics of the master keys for the TSA approved locks.

TSA only has keys for TSA locks...which can be opened by almost anyone with or without a key, anyway.

Anything passing through the secure area of an airport is subject to search, locked or not. It's a condition of access. If you check a bag or attempt to pass through security to the secure side, your consent to search for you and all possessions, carried or checked, is part of that passage.

TSA today were expressing their inner asshole. I don't usually pass through security, but today took the precheck line, where I asked for a tray to put my things, and was refused.

What do you need a tray for?

"Because I asked for one."

"You don't need one."

"Where would you like me to put my shit?"

"You don't need one. Just drop your bags and walk through."

Having been through this game for going on four decades, I began putting things in a small tray, and was again told don't. Naturally, the detector rang.

"Why didn't you put your things in the tray?"

Assholes.

Happened to me once. Went on a business trip and came home, wife was unpacking my suitcase and got excited. Did you get me anything? I said no. She asked again, are you sure, you didnt get me some jewelry? I said no. Then she threw a ring at me and said "then who the hell does this belong to?"

Turned out it was the maid in the hotel. She must have been going through my stuff

always pack / unpack your own shit.

And never let the maid in the room unless you have to.

I like the question 'Is there anything in here that you don't know about?'

Huh?

For true coughs and giggles, my bag smells to dogs like C4. They hit on it occasionally.

This always. Seen too many practical jokers through the years get too many guys in trouble.
