    I had to leave this dangerous tool in Omaha. I wrote to the TSA, and they apoligized and offered to send it backto me. 2 days later, I received a response. "Sorry,we can't seem to find it". I suppose they forgot to look in the screeners pocket. TSA  Omaha - Tool.JPG

    Gee how nice of the thieves. Send them a reply back, telling them to check there ASSes pockets for it and/or cut a check for it.

    Thats not a threat but then again TSA doesnt wouldnt know a threat unless hit them in the (expletive deleted).

    My son has a good explaination for this.
    A terrorist could grab a pilot and say. "If you don't turn over control of the plane to me, I'll make your glasses really really loose."

    This reminds me of the time I had my eyelash curler confiscated. I remember turning to someone behind me and saying, "What do they think I'm going to do? Run up to the pilot and say "Take me to Havana or I'm going to make you byooteeful!"?

    Along with nail clippers and cosmestic tweezers-I have been saying this:
    if you cannot defend yourself against a pair of tweezers or a nail clippers, you have NO business walking in the streets. (Go back under your bed and let me live my live.)

    I commented on one that said;
    UtahBlueDevil writes: "I will gladly let the TSA fondle my ankles if it means I don't have to play Rambow [sic] in the skies. Fact is, they haven't had to do so in over a year... and if they did, so what. I have never been stripped, never been groped, and neither have 99.999 percent of Americans."
    What a poor, misguided person.

    The sad part is that the tool pictured is allowed by the standards posted on the TSA website, but not by the ignorant jackwagons "working" at the checkpoint.

    What's the over/under on UtahBleuDevil being one of Pistole's Perverts, and not a FF at all?

    No matter how true for however many years the small tools allowance has been posted, I have never, ever heard/witness of a blue breasted smurf letting one slip through. (That they actually found.)

    It was the first thing that popped into my mind on reading the monicker - who but one of Pistole's Perverts would self-identify as a "Blue Devil" these days?

    I carried a similar model in my camera bag from 2007 through 2010. Either they never noticed it or they didn't feel the need to assert their inadequacies for those trips.

    From personal experience, I'd side with they didn't see it. I had a keyring swiss army (amongst tweezers and so forth,) less than one inch blade was ...voluntarily surrendered.

    You're absolutely right, but I got the BS (Blank Stare) from this dill hole, and he just kept repeating "No Multi Tools" Every question I asked him, he simply repeated "No Multi Tools". The Stupidvisor backed him up. I have no doubt, it left the Airport in his pocket.

    Calling a TSA employee a "dill hole" is an understatement, redundant, and unfair to the dill holes of the world.

    TSA employees are a species without honor, integrity, or honesty, going to work on a daily basis to violate the traveling public performing warrantless searches for drugs and/or cash under the pretense of "safety." They are thieves, rapists, molesters, and idiots without marketable skills.

    And "voluntary surrender" is just another method of at least conversion if not outright theft.

    Of course, it's just another shifty word play.
    Call poop whatever word you want, it does not change what the it is.

    "Voluntary" under pressure from lack of reasonable choice....:rolleyes:

    Especially when it's wearing a TSA uniform.

    I do not carry a multi-tool but I do carry multiple tools. They get a lot of attention, but each one was selected based on the TSA specifications. They even measure them from time to time. I have 6" Vise-Grips, 6" adjustable wrench, multiple screwdriver bits and a handle, sockets and an inspection mirror. Now if you assemble the screwdriver handle with the extension and install a long bit it is a bit over 10", but that seems to be beyond their mechanical skills.
