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. 1d

  •   imchrischuck @drmark11 and unlocked cabin doors... They lock them now, so good luck fighting off hordes of people while trying to open the cabin doors with a tiny knife 12h
  •   iamwjc I laugh at these guys who get caught with knives like that. I've snuck my 4" blade knife through airport security TWICE! (I forgot I had it in my pocket and it has sentimental value) 12h

  •   pelvicpenguin I found a small knife in the backpack I always use when traveling. No idea how long it's been in there. It's somehow made it through countless TSA checkpoints without them (or even me) knowing. 4h

If an item looks like a real bomb, grenade, etc., it’s prohibited. Items such as these can cause significant delays while the explosives detection professionals resolve the alarm. #TSACatch 2d

  •   bev_stevens @toxic-atom @lightskinlovespink @angie_f_babyy @kyron_h @nashlindley @misslupo I have been Randomly authorized for pre Never went thru extensive pre-screening, or paid $$ and I really don't travel too much. 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. 2d

tsa #TSACatch - This is a notebook cover that was discovered yesterday in a carry-on bag at the #Albany International Airport. On the X-ray however, it looked like an improvised explosive device. There was no malicious intent here, but it’s important to remember that homemade #DIY projects can often look pretty ominous to our X-ray operators. #TSATravelTips 1w

tsa #TSATravelTips - Even without a firearm, 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. 2w

tsa #TSACatch #TBT - This replica Claymore anti-personnel land mine was discovered in a checked bag at the #Tulsa International Airport in November of 2012. Keep in mind that if an item looks like a real bomb, grenade, mine, etc., it is prohibited. When these items are found at a checkpoint or in checked baggage, they can cause significant delays because the explosives detection professionals must resolve the alarm to determine the level of threat. Even if they are novelty items, you cannot bring them on a plane. For the record, “Dummy” was already written on the mine upon discovery. 2w
