You wouldn't believe the stuff I've found in my carry on.

Wait... just a shell? As in a small piece of hollow brass?

Live cartridge. I think it's Mexico that having a shell casing is a no-no.

Been there done that.

TSA found a single .40 round in my laptop case a couple of years ago.

Not a real big deal, but I did have to talk to the MAN.

Funny thing was. . . i was on a business trip and had not been armed in any way for a week or more. That round was well traveled. Just took a while to find it.

That bag had been hand checked five or six times before it showed up.

Made a shot glass from a cut-down 25 mm shell, tried to bring it on with my carry-on, freakin TSA made me leave it at the airport.

It was clearly empty, no powder, projectile, & dimpled primer, but they deemed it 'unsafe'.

What a crock of shit.
