    Here's an interesting article on about weapons confiscated by the TSA. What gets me, though, is two things....

    1) There's a lot of automatics loaded, but not chambered. That has to be luggage because that many people would carry unchambered.

    2) It doesn't say how they were "confiscated".

    Interesting read. I fly 3-4 times a year to Florida to visit my dad. Long weekends,,, A gentleman 10 foot ahead of me was yanked out of the line for concealing a paintball rifle. His bags were pre checked and all he needed to do was board the plain. He turned out legit but had to leave his rifle behind as it was not properly cased.

    So how do you check your weapons if you CC in your state of origin and it reciprocates in the destination state?

    Even with CCW, you have to lock it up and follow the proper procedures as someone without CCW.

    My guess is that most were just undeclared in luggage. If you can legally transport a gun in your checked luggage providing it is properly stowed and declared, why would you try to hide it in a detergent box? :confused: I shouldn't be, but sometimes I'm still surprised at how stupid some people can be.
