Re: Funny you should mention that.... grin
In Response To: Careful at the airport ()

We flew to Las Vegas around October 12, 2001. It was the emptiest and quietest plane ride we'd ever had.

We were at the Golden Gate and I saw that key chain. We already had the Silver Slipper ones, and I loved them, so I was thrilled to find the similar one from the Golden Gate. While I was buying them the cashier told me that they'd gotten a couple of phone calls from customers who had bought them in the past couple of weeks. I don't remember if she said that any had been confiscated, but they'd triggered TSA searches.

When we flew home I put that keychain, with the gun out of the holster, in the plastic tray to go through the scanner. I also pointed it out to the agent, and made sure she knew it's a souvenir keychain. She took it to a supervisor, before allowing me to keep it!
