Thought I would have been stopped by TSA

    I went on a business trip last week to Portland, OR from Salt Lake City, UT. I carried my brief case onto the plane and so it went through the TSA scanning process with me. A few weeks earlier I bought some large magnum primers and threw them in my brief case. Also I had one live .223 round in there also that I was trying to match at the gun store. Both of these went through security without a hitch.

    I forgot I had that stuff in my brief case so it wasn't like I was deliberately covering up anything. I would have thought they have caught it and I would have had some explaining to do. A .223 round would definitely show up on the x-ray.

    Both these items got put into my checked on luggage for the return trip.

    Crap shoot at best...I had a pocket knife taken away from me that was in my shaving kit. In the same kit was a 6" pair of scissors. Thankfully, they missed them somehow.

    I once made it through airport security with a fully loaded .45 magazine I'd mistakenly left in my briefcase. I have no idea how they missed that, but they must have been asleep. But I have had lighters and shampoo and juice bottles taken.

    Once while traveling through Ireland with a buddy, I was stopped because i didn't have my toothpaste in a plastic bag. When we got back home my buddy found that he had a pocket knife in his bag the whole time.

    I went through security on my last trip with my Swiss Army knife in the laptop bag. I had completely forgotten that it was in there and I was not stopped going either direction.

    They did take my lighter away on the trip home, though.

    Wow, stories like that really give you zero faith for the security of our airlines!
