    Has anyone got a notice to TSA that they are particularly proud of?
    I'm looking to tape something inside my Pelican case, so TSA doesn't kill my new JJ CCR (even tho I'll be carrying the head separately). Actually, the same thing really applies to my carryon when it goes thru x- ray and they want to open it up.

    Thanks!

    they hand inspected my AMP meter in LAX. They didn't know what it was until I told them it was a sexual aid. they stopped bare hand touching it after that and ushered me along without further inspection.

    The TSA is why I will not fly. They all look to me like people one usually tries to avoid contact with. I doubt there is any helping you with the dregs that make up the TSA. Pay your money take your chances. Good Luck!

    I like the underwear idea. Make sure there are healthy skid marks for their viewing pleasure.

    Smeared with dark and dry peanut butter will work much better.

    I was hunting in the UP of Michigan. My rifle went through TSA. They told me they had to check the gun for GSR. I told them the test would be positive because:
    1. It is a gun;
    2. It has been recently fired; and,
    3. it has not been cleaned.
    They insisted. The test came back positive. Nobody cared that they were handling a "dangerous" weapon in an airport.

    More than several times during screening, my regulator bag has been inspected even though I have a KTN. Twice the inspector asked if I was a SCUBA diver. Umm, aahhh, yeah!

    A note will not help you!

    cheers,

    They let a recently fired GSR positive gun on a plane!!??! /s

    I honestly think they are mentally just 8yos and like playing with their Christmas chemistry sets.
