.380's are highest gun taken at airport security...
 
Seen a report on the local news that over 2,000 guns where taken from people trying to get on airplanes across the U.S. in the past year...15 where here in St.Louis Mo.....85% of the guns where loaded and .380 pocket-pistols where by fare the most taken from people....Just-Saying....

The downside to carrying a .380 (e.g. Ruger LCP) is that they are so comfortable and light that one invariably forgets it's on their person.

I agree I keep my Kel Tec next to my wallet on the table and grab both every time I leave home. I can see forgetting you had one with you. Costly mistake to make at airport though.

How could a weapon be of any use if you can not remember having it? Entering an airport you know you will be challanged. A weapon that is forgotten under stress is less protection than a hot cup of coffee.

Do you think they auction off the confiscated guns like they do the leatherman tools?
If so, maybe I would.......never mind, I hate auctions.

If they confiscate a gun,I bet you never see-it again....I would think 9mm would be the most confiscated but I guess the little .380's are making a big dent in the carry market these days.....I have a ruger LCP & kel-tec p3at.........

Read a story last year about a Playboy model being arrested at the airport for carrying a Ruger Blackhawk in her purse. Don't know if she forgot that she had it or what. :p

She may have confused it with her other "blackhawk".

DAMN....I was just at Cabela's here in St.Louis and they have the Ruger LCP .380 marked-up to $399....The gun counter was empty except for about twenty guns....and no .380 ammo at all.....I'm waiting till this Obama sh!t gets over with and things get back to reality....$399 for a Ruger.380 LCP...WOW...Never thought I'd see the day.....Again...WOW......

I am ASTOUNDED that in one year 2000 people are that damn dumb as to show up at an airport with a gun!
