Here's a little comparison of a 50 BMG.

(.50 BMG, .300 Win Mag, .300 Win, 7.62x39mm, 5.56 NATO, .22 LR)
I have one of those, bought it as a novelty as its way too big to use for a keychain. I use it for an airhorn pull on my Freightliner big rig.

The TSA will let a Muslin, in full Muzzie garb walk through, then stop tiny white 90 year old woman, because she is wearing an American flag lapel pin.

They would probably hit you for having ammo and a kubotan

I was returning to America from a job in Ireland. Had to change planes in Chicago. My carry on had a dial caliper in it. The idiot on the scanner yelled pistol. All hell broke out. They grabbed me pronto. They were pointing at the screen going crazy. "What is zat kinda goon man"? I ask for a manager. When the fellow showed up he explained it was a devise used by engineers. As I walked away the idiots were still bitching that I had a pistol. I still can not believe that happened in America.

I was hassled at DIA about 5 years ago for my Zippo lighter. Now anyone who has ever thrown a bic at the ground knows they explode upon impact but my zippo bounces and there is no chance of it exploding but TSA has no clue about these things. Convinced that it was a form of an explosive they confiscated the innerds and gave me back the case telling me I could pick up a pack of matches at the bar in the airport. The irony was that I was wearing a t shirt that said,"Suck Sand Sadam" guess they thought I was a possible threat with my 5" brim and boots I must have looked like a towelhead.

The agent said it was standard procedure. I continued to get irrate and verbally combative (was prepared to go to court). Long story short a supervisor was called, the key chain was confiscated and I was allowed to continue to nc after I removed item 2 (picture) and stored it in my carry on.
Does it go "Tink" instead of bang? LOL

The TSA is way out of control. I traveled overseas to work at Nuke sites for a few years and had a hard time coming back thru immigration because of where I had been.

Have always thought it should be spelled O'Hell. Watched a gate agent there send passengers down the jetway to board an aircraft. Problem: No airplane at the bottom of THAT jetway.
