    I wonder if I went through with a bottle labeled trinitrotoluene if they’d stop me?

    You can go through with 24 ounce bottles of water labeled “saline solution” without a problem.

    They looked over my loaded .45acp ammo on the way to the National Matches a year ago. The ammo was inside a locked hardshell pistol box. They got past the lock, cut open the cardboard cartons and retaped them with homeland secuirty tape and relocked the hardshell.
