Skull- your kevlar won't affect the security screener, nor will your outdated pager. However, the radio frequency scanners DO affect my replacement knee, causing involuntary movement.

You oughta see what happens when I press the garage door opener......
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

I've never had a problem. I have a ccw and carry my compact 1911 almost everywhere and never set off alarms. However, don't try carrying one into the courthouse.

Default Mri

This is no joke, don't go near a MRI machine while carrying, unless your
piece is all non-steel.

Even if they did have metal detectors, I don't think you can get in trouble for it unless they have a sign prohibiting people from carrying concealed in those places.

I set one offf at a new super wal mart by carrying my $5, cuffs, two extra magazines, my wifes model 38 smith, and two speed strips, and a radio. And cerll phone. First two times, no one said boo. third day, I just told them i was packing, and showed the lady that marks your ticket. Probably not a good idea, but she said it did that a lot, she was sorry, they were still adjusting the thing.

As far as I know, the previous posters were right, those things work on radio frequency. How could this be?After the store was open a month, no more problems.Did my gun take a magnetic or radio frequency "charge'? Cell phone the culprit? The lady at the door seemed to indicate it was a common problem, and "they were working on it". beats me, and i am a ccw instructor.

I would set everyone of them things off. Why My wallet had an RFID in it that had not been deactivated. It was so funny when I come walking IN to the store and set the alarms off. Finely a nice hottie at Petsmart wanded my azz and it doesn't do it anymore.
