At my dive club meeting this past week a member who also owns a dive shop said that the either the TSA or Continental might start a new policy of not allowing dive computers and regulators to be carried on board as carry on.
I can't remember if he said it was going to be a TSA policy or a Continental Airlines policy. Also keep in mind this is not set in stone, but is a possibilty. So has anyone else heard about this possibilty? I tried to do a search but didn't find anything.

I've got a friend who is a TSA supervisor, and we were just talking today about traveling with dive gear carry-ons, like regs and computers and HID lights. He never said a thing, except that it's perfectly fine.
Continental would lose tons of business, considering that they tote around 40% of all divers to the Carribean and the South Seas.
If there is no real problem now, why in the future?
Doesn't make any sense to me at all. Especially if it is an airline policy vs an TSa policy. If it was an airline policy I for one sure as hell woiuldn't tell them I'm carry on a dive computer or regulator.
If this did happen i would be at a loss to understand the reasoning for this.
