TSA Releases Top 10 List of Most Unusual Items Found in Bags for 2021

January 13, 2022

The Transportation Security Administration released a video on its Twitter feed of the Top 10 most unusual items found in bags in 2021. Things like a breakfast burrito stuffed with crystal meth...

As a public service announcement, Gun Talk would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that before you fly, check ALL the pockets, dump and shake all bags, and if you have one, run a metal detector wand over your bag as well. (Some options here!).
P.S. Only use a range bag for trips to the range.
