    Y'all don't get my wrong, there are a lot of places in this old world I would love to see, but the price is just too high in our currant World Political arena. I would love to go to Isrial, but I would probably join their military, in what ever capacity they would have me, and never come back! I don't care what the rest of the world says, or does, where Isrial is concerned, I will stand with them, and for them!

    Moral of the story, if you are going to fly DO NOT USE YOUR RANGE BAG!

    If you have had ammo in your range bag it will most likely set off explosive detecting machine or tip off the cop dogs.

    If you are going to Mexico I wouldn't even want a spent shell casing in your vehicle or anywhere around. One bullet, one trip to jail.

    Don't get me wrong I feel bad for this guy, but you have to know the laws of where you are going. Same thing applies here in the States too, like Juker pointed out.
    Ignorance of the law is never an excuse.

    Where's the common sense? I made the mistake of going into Rocky Flats(Federal Nuclear trigger facility) years ago in my personnal vehicle on an emergency repair call and the security guys found a spent .22 casing on the floor boards, probably from someones boot lugs. They tore my truck apart searching for the gun, even though I had been there dozens of times and had even discussed firearms and hunting with one of the guys(who was present during the search) on several occassions. The idiot in charge said to me" We have evidence you've been in the presence of firearms". To which I replied," Yeah, well, you realize this IS America, don't you?"
    They even removed the liners in the doors and the back of the cab wall, do you know how hard it is to replace those properly?

    Along with all that TSA groping of one's privates - before long they'll have everyone stripping down and flying in hospital gowns. More uber-reactionary B.S. One shoe bomber, and billions of people are having their shoes checked. One underwear bomber, and loose the hounds to legally grab your junk.

    Nossiree, I'll pass on that particular invasion.


    Maybe airlines could just post a "Fly at your own risk" disclaimer...

    DD I dont know now much International travel you do from FL, but I can tell you that bringing a Weapon, of any kind, is a major offense in Mexico (and having grown up and lived in border states all my life, it's of particular interest to me!)

    There was a case when a guy from AZ was arrested in Mexico and thrown in jail, for having a single spent cartridge in his trunk. He was jailed, not charged, he was not allowed what we would call "due process" here in the US, and I was a spectator to the entire thing! one of his best friends worked next to me, and I heard the daily phone calls... getting this guy food, pressuring the consulate, talking to private attorneys... it took MONTHS!!! and this is our ally, Mexico, in the early 90's... and wasnt even a gun or loaded ammo.

    TWICE... I've accidentally imported ammo into Mexico without even realizing it. Once it was in my travel bag, I had 2 speed loaders with hydra-shok and somehow they mysteriously vanished while I was taking my morning swim in the ocean, the other time I was riding with a buddy from work and he realized he had maybe 20 - 50 shotgun shells in his truck toolbox and we were already past the point of no return to the US... I said "just play it cool, let them look wherever they want to look, act like we have nothing and we're happy to be here spending money and chasing girls" and once we got past border inspection we radioed our buddies in the other cars and pulled over in the middle of nowhere and promptly removed about 40 felonies from the vehicle.

    DO NOT think that our "rights" apply anywhere else. You will be sorely mistaken.
