They don't usually x-ray your luggage in your presence. so i wouldn't sweat it unless you are actually asked or pulled aside. stick to your game plan, or else you can expect a long delay.

I beg to differ, that big machine that they send your luggage through while you go through the metal detector, what do you think that is bro?

That only scans your carry on luggage (why would he have pipes in there?), the bags you check in to go under the plane don't get scanned while you are around... at least not at any of the airports I have been to.

Note to self: Don't fly with... What airline did you fly again?

Unfortunately enough, if I were to get rowdy, they'd pull teh real guns on me.

considering how many times all of us have been zapped by flybacks, flashes, stunguns, and various other circuits, i'd think that a stungun would feel like a mosquito bite.

A couple airports I've been to have had a seperate large xray scanner for checked luggage near the airlines checkers. Not sure why, maybe either over crowding with the scanners out of view, or the airport trying to give a sense of security by checking bags. But some airports do scan checked luggage in front of the public.

Well incase you don't know I made it back safe and sound with a nice little note from US customs in my suitcase saying they took a peak...and liked what they saw :D

Nah it just said they physically searched my suitcase, but everything is still there, and incase you are wondering what 'everything' is, well this is my spudgun supplies I bought over there:

There is a QEV, 4,000 metal BB's and in those little bags are several small brass fittings the rest is self explanatory

I've got the basic GB gun and PB gun drying at the moment, made from spare parts. I've also put the QEV metal gun together but I need to add some finishing touches.
