tsa #TSATravelTips - Our officers continue to find ammunition in carry-on bags on a weekly basis. Ammunition is still prohibited from being transported in carry-on bags. Ammunition can be transported in your checked luggage as long as it’s securely packed in fiber (such as cardboard), wood or metal boxes or other packaging specifically designed to carry small amounts of ammunition. Magazines and ammunition clips, whether loaded or empty, must be securely boxed or included within a hard-sided case containing an unloaded firearm. Small arms ammunition, including ammunition not exceeding .75 caliber for a rifle or pistol and shotgun shells of any gauge, may be carried in the same hard-sided case as the firearm, as long as it follows the packing guidelines described above. 1w
  •   dylan_henson Privatization almost always works better because competition demands improvement or others will pass you up and you lose the job. DFW is the only place I've ever had a positive TSA experience. Anywhere else has been an experience with people who hate their job and show it in the way they treat passengers. Privatization is an easy fix for that as well as lowering wait times and developing new technologies. 1w
  •   streaksinthe_sky @hamlover96 actually yeah... If they stand to lose revenue or contracts they would probably make sure they did the best job possible... Maybe like UPS or FedEx or private schools? Name one entity besides the military that wouldn't function better privatized 1w
  •   jaredstump @dylan_henson @mikesp33 - I had very positive experiences with TSA over the weekend on all segments of my trip from Baltimore to Dallas Love Field and back. 1w
  •   sanjay228 @streaksinthe_sky Oh yeah because UPS and FedEx are the best at their jobs. And a private school, while having the word private in them, is a completely different industry and thus can hardly be compared to security. If you privatize security of a country's citizens, and yes that is what TSA was implemented for, you in turn leave all of the lives of that country in the hands of corporations. Which in affect means you're placing all those lives in the hands of a select few people motivated by money rather than the well-being of the people. Kind of like all the banks during the recession... So is Privatization really that great of an idea for national security, or should the security of a country's citizens be left to the people that represent them (aka elected leaders)? 1w
  •   sevenpines62 They had private security that's how 9/11 happened. I remember before TSA I'd set off the metal detector. "Its my belt." "Oh, ok." Security was a joke before TSA. 1w

tsa #TSACatch - This inert/novelty grenade was discovered this week in a carry-on bag at the Charleston International Airport. While it’s a gag item, they cannot be brought on the plane in carry-on or checked bags. All grenades are treated as real until the explosives experts can prove otherwise, which often leads to delayed flights or luggage. 2w

Not sure why but it's cool because I've traveled alone to see my kids and have problems w/feet,legs so it was convenient that I didn't have to remove my brace. And @rickjames81 I'm nothing special, don't believe I'm an ahole or have a huge ego lol. Although I did see some in that line & they looked at me like "what's she in this line for?" Haha, it was quite humorous Oh & I also traveled one time w/son & husband and their line was faster than my pre lol. Either way it hasn't been around long enough for ME to make an educated opinion. 2w
